  51. 51. Some Winter School Tips
  52. 52. • Have you watched the tutorials and done your reading? • Let the data inform theory and let your expectations be challenged and shaped by the data. • Test hypotheses and tools on small datasets first. • Split big groups into subgroups. • Plan in time to work on the presentation and wiki report on the last day. • Focus final presentation on a few significant findings. • Be persistent - there are always ups and downs. • Take coffee breaks seriously :-)
  53. 53. Thank you and enjoy the Winter School!
