New workshops and new website??

I’m back! and feeling energized and very excited to be starting workshops again real soon! Ok May 4 will be the first set.

I’ll be offering SAS workshops on Tuesday mornings, R workshops on Tuesday afternoons, and what I like to call Crimes of Statistics workshops on Thursday afternoons. Yes, we’ll be continuing to use the TEAMS 0nline platform, and I encourage everyone who joins me to get involved in the workshops!

Where are the workshops? Too many to list here – so please visit the registration sites:

Tuesday workshops –https://oacstats_workshops.youcanbook.me/

Thursday workshops – https://oacstatstutorials.youcanbook.me/

Oh I did say something about a new website?? Well… it’s a Sharepoint site – it was fun to play around with it. What does this mean really? It’s a landing site for all of our workshops. I like to think of it as a one-stop-shop. Ok, I’m really hoping that it works out to be the one-stop-shop. If you drop by, let me know please!! Oops – would you like the link too https://uoguelphca.sharepoint.com/sites/OACStats_Workshops Now you can go check it out 🙂

Well that’s all the news for today – I’m aiming to keep this site a bit more moving along with my SASsyFridays blog – so stay tuned.

Take care everyone and get ready for that snow!!

Spring 2021

Good day everyone! I know I know – it’s been a while since I’ve been in here. I never thought I’d admit this – but teaching a full course in an online format has been exhausting! But no worries – I’m coming back with workshops and blog posts on a number of exciting topics real soon!

Keep an eye out for workshop schedules coming real soon!

Also – reach out to me if you’re interested in a new workshop topic – you know I love to teach and I love to learn new things too!

Is there a topic you’ve been curious about? Let me know and I’ll a blog post and/or a workshop.

See you all once the W21 semester is complete!

SAS: PROC GLIMMIX – Why are your students using it?

I’ve been talking about creating a workshop for faculty and research associates for a bit now.  Well – it’s done! I’ve recorded a workshop (1 hour) that reviews ANOVA and SAS – and walks through 3 examples. To view the workshop – you will need a University of Guelph email, however, the powerpoint and SAS examples are linked here. Any questions, please let me know.
