Authors: Laura Ación, Mara Averick, Leonardo Collado-Torres, Auriel Fournier, Alison Presmanes Hill, Sean Kross, Lincoln Mullen

At the 5th annual rOpenSci unconference in May 2018, a group of scientists and educators shared their experiences, frustrations, failures, and successes teaching science with R. What came out of this discussion was a framework for rOpenSci Educators’ Collaborative: a community of practice for people interested and engaged in science education using R. This blog post is the second of a three-post series about education and R, written by this group of unconf18 participants. Read the first post about common pedagogical challenges here, and how to get involved here.

In the first post of this series, we sketched out some of the common challenges faced by educators who teach with R across scientific domains. In this post, we delve into what makes a “good” educational resource for teaching science with R.
