Short Course: Interactive Web-Based Visualizations and Decision Support Tools in Shiny/R for Quantitative Scientists
Web-based interactive tools can facilitate stakeholder engagement and provide greater transparency in decision making, which can be particularly useful for controversial topics. By promoting greater involvement as well as a shared understanding of trade-offs that are often unavoidable among different scenarios, these decision support tools can help forge a path forward for wicked problems.
This course aims to introduce quantitative scientists interested in socio-environmental synthesis to Shiny/R as a way of shrinking the gap between information generation in science and policy making or public outreach through the creation of web-based tools.
