These are semi-regular, student-organized workshops in which students and faculty exchange expertise in research techniques. In each session, someone leads the members through the basics of some technique (often software). From Praat to LaTeX, from statistical software to statistical thinking - we try to cover anything that will be of use to those doing research.
Location: Totem Field Studios - seminar room (Rm. 103)
