Develop a working knowledge of Microsoft Excel to manage, analyse and visualise your research data.

About this Event

This training program is supported by the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research) of the University of Sydney. Placements will be prioritised for researchers and research students at the University of Sydney. Registrants who are not researchers or research students at the University of Sydney may be moved to the waitlist. Thank you for your understanding. Please keep an eye on the Intersect website for upcoming courses at your home institution.

This course has two sessions:

  • 9:30 am - 12:30 pm on 3 Feb
  • 9:30 am - 12:30 pm on 4 Feb

An optional technical support on setting up Excel will start at 9 am on 3 Feb.

Data rarely comes in the form you require. Often it is messy. Sometimes it is incomplete. And sometimes there's too much of it. Frequently, it has errors. We'll use one of the most widespread data wrangling tools, Microsoft Excel, to import, sort, filter, copy, protect, transform, summarise, merge, and visualise research data.

While aimed at novice Excel users, most attendees will walk away with new tricks to work more efficiently with their research data.

You’ll learn to:

  • ‘Clean up’ messy research data
  • Organise, format and name your data
  • Perform calculations on your data using functions (MAX, MIN, AVERAGE)
  • Extract significant findings from your data (PIVOT TABLE, VLOOKUP)
  • Manipulate your data (convert data format, work with DATES and TIMES)
  • Create graphs and charts to visualise your data (CHARTS)
  • Handy tips to speed up your work
