Foundational Research Modules

Throughout the year, Bass Connections, in partnership with the Office of Undergraduate Research Support and experts across campus, will offer research modules designed to provide students (undergraduate and graduate) with foundational knowledge in research practices. These sessions are open to all Duke students, staff and faculty (you do not have to be a member of a Bass Connections team to participate).

Please register to receive the Zoom link:

In this session, the Duke Social Science Research Institute will introduce qualitative research methods and practices.

The module will cover:

-Finding and using existing data sources
-Data wrangling: normalizing and cleaning
-Literate coding: combining prose and code to render analytical reports
-Version control (git & GitHub): self-document the story of your code-based project and collaborations
-Computational reproducibility: exemplary tools (e.g. OpenRefine, R, Python)
