National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis

Learning Hub

Our knowledge-sharing community is a place where researchers can learn the latest data science skills and technologies, enabling their research to inform solutions more quickly and effectively.

Build your capacity in data stewardship, synthesis, and reproducible research.

Open, reproducible research is becoming ever more critical for answering today’s complex environmental questions at the scale and speed needed for solutions. 

Our courses, resources, mentored programs will help you rise to this need and get up to speed with the best practices and tools for collaborative data science. They will help you increase your efficiency, productivity, transparency, and collaborative capacity as a researcher - ultimately helping your research work better for society.

The NCEAS Learning Hub is a welcoming and inclusive environment for data-oriented researchers from academic institutions, government agencies, NGOs, and other organizations and from all stages of their careers. Our offerings are applicable to a wide range of programming languages and skill levels.

  • Courses

    Dive in to a variety of data science topics, from the basics of programming in R to advanced computing techniques.

  • Mentored Programs

    Gain experience and mentorship through our experiential learning programs to build your skills and confidence in data and open science.

  • Resources

    Learn at your own pace with the materials we have developed for our in-person courses.

What skills should the next generation of ecologists invest in to be able to answer complex questions about our changing world? This video features some of today's brightest minds in ecology, whom NCEAS has supported, and their advice on what the bright minds of tomorrow will need.
