Virtual Workshop | Data Bytes - Data Cleaning with OpenRefine
Wednesday, March 3, 2021
3-4:30pm

If you work with large spreadsheets and have been known to spend hours going cell by cell to find errors, we can show you how to save time and aggravation. OpenRefine is a powerful free tool for working with messy data: cleaning it; transforming it from one format into another; and extending it with web services and external data. OpenRefine always keeps your data private on your own computer until YOU want to share or collaborate. Your private data never leaves your computer unless you want it to. (It works by running a small server on your computer and you use your web browser to interact with it). Participants will download OpenRefine to their own devices and learn by doing.

Please note this is an online event. The online event URL will be sent to you in an email confirming your registration. Register at https://okstate.libcal.com/event/7474846.

Presented by Edmon Low Library Faculty and brought to you by the OSU-Tulsa Library.

Journaling the Journey | Led by Eric Howerton

4-week workshop, $150 to register

In an attempt to work less and live more, philosopher Henry David Thoreau spent two years isolated in a shack in the woods. With little camping experience, author Cheryl Strayed solo hiked the 1,100-mile Pacific Crest Trail in an effort to conquer inner demons. And documentarian Morgan Spurlock ate nothing but McDonald’s for 30 days to determine the effects of chronic fast-food consumption on the body. Q: What, if anything, do these three individuals have in common? A: They used a challenge to disrupt everyday patterns and routines, learning more about their character, their values, and the world around them in the process. This class embraces the notion that significant growth and reflection can be generated through experiments on the self that force the mind and/or body into new and unfamiliar territory. Students will be asked to design and commit to a (safe) 8-day experiment and document the experience with daily journal entries. The nature of your experiment is entirely up to you (e.g., living without a cell phone for 8 days; becoming a temporary vegetarian; taking a vow of silence; etc.). Regardless of the experiment you design, your journal entries will ultimately help you draft a 6-10 page essay chronicling the experience and what you learned along the way.
