Workshop: Opening up the World of Data

Date and Time


Community Classroom, 10C Shared Space, (42 Carden Street, Guelph, N1H 3A2)

Image reads the title of the event, "Opening up the world of data" and the three organizations co-hosting it.


Data can empower your organization to create stronger proposals, develop evidence-informed programs, and demonstrate impact, but knowing where to find it and what to do with it can be a challenge. This three-hour workshop will provide an introduction to where you can find data and how you can use it in your own projects.

You will learn about:

  • finding and obtaining data
  • data management practices (e.g. backups, sharing data and licensing)
  • data cleaning and analysis

... and get hands-on with data using open source software used for data analysis.

Bring your laptop! A portion of the workshop will be dedicated to hands-on activities to help you practice your new data skills. If you do not have a laptop please let us know ( so that we can make arrangement to use one at 10C.

All welcome! Please make sure to register to confirm your participation. Participants will receive a confirmation email with a pre-workshop survey (yeah data!) and software requirements. If you have any questions, please email Joy Sammy ( at 10C.

This workshop is a collaboration between 10C Shared Space, the University of Guelph Library Research & Scholarship team, and the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute.
