Learning materials

We organise our training materials in two curricula. The Outbreak Analytics curriculum aims to facilitate finding, choosing, and using R packages for outbreak analytics tasks to inform decision-making. The Research Sofware curriculum aims to extend our R toolset to produce open, reproducible and sustainable data analysis projects following good Research Sofware practices.

We address these goals with an e-Epi training kit, Tutorials, Case studies, and How-to guides:

  • The e-Epi training kit is an e-learning strategy for progressive and flexible learning. It includes an introductory e-course in data science for public health and infectious disease modelling in Latin America and the Caribbean with a gender perspective. Initially only with content in Spanish. (coming soon)
  • Tutorials will help you learn how to complete an outbreak analytic task following a practical step-by-step guide using R packages to start your own journey.
  • Case studies are real-life retrospective accounts of real projects delivered by users in the field. (coming soon)
  • How-to guides are question-specific recipe-like scripts to show how multiple R packages can interoperate to get a solution.

Please note the development stage of the learning materials. A “pre-alpha” tutorial is still being constructed. An “alpha” tutorial is being taught by the original authors but has not been fully tested.

Outbreak Analytics Curriculum

These workshops focus on working with outbreak data using peer-reviewed interoperable open-source software like R packages to help the decision-making process in public health.
