  • Fundamentals of Statistics

    30 January - 3 February 2023

    Melbourne, Australia

    Fundamentals of Statistics https://dresa.org.au/events/fundamentals-of-statistics In this course, you will obtain a solid foundation in basic statistical concepts and procedures to progress with some confidence into more advanced topics. This is an introductory unit in statistical methods emphasising statistical techniques applicable to the social sciences, although these introductory techniques are also relevant to the health sciences. Key examples from journal articles will illustrate the use and reporting of the statistical techniques covered in this unit. The approach to learning will be largely non-mathematical, concentrating on concepts rather than mathematical theory. Software The course will use the free and open-source software jamovi, which can be downloaded from https://www.jamovi.org/download.html. While jamovi is built on top of the R statistical language, it has a look and feel very similar to IBM SPSS Statistics and is easier to use in many ways. Depending on student preferences, there will be an opportunity to use IBM SPSS Statistics v28. Instructions will be provided for both packages, and students can choose to use either jamovi or IBM SPSS Statistics v28. 2023-01-30 09:00:00 UTC 2023-02-03 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia University of Melbourne Melbourne Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 20 workshop open_to_all Fundamentals of StatisticsStatisticsJamoviStatistical Methodsquantitative

  • Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis

    30 January - 3 February 2023

    Melbourne, Australia

    Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis https://dresa.org.au/events/applied-longitudinal-data-analysis Longitudinal Data Analysis is a very popular statistical method in a range of fields including medicine, natural resource management, business and economics. As well as allowing a researcher to elicit the changes in a subject (person, business, etc) over time, longitudinal data is also exceedingly powerful as it allows the within-subject and between-subject variance to be estimated independently (generally allowing the parameters in the statistical model to be estimated with a much tighter accuracy than traditional models). This course provides an overview of Longitudinal Data Analysis. As well as the statistical theory, an overview of the many applications and capabilities of LDA is given. The course is not particularly mathematical, but instead places emphasis on the fundamental concepts of LDA and how it is used by applied researchers. The workshop will focus on linear mixed effects models, however we will also go through generalized linear mixed effects models and any new material a participant will need to understand in order to successfully use generalized LME’s. There will be exercises using both types of models. The computer exercises for this workshop will be conducted in Stata. Stata has been chosen as it provides both basic and advanced functionality for conducting longitudinal data analyses. A full set of exercises and solutions in Stata will be provided in this workshop, where they include the Stata syntax required to perform each individual exercise. In addition the workshop presenter will demonstrate how to use Stata for the first exercise in each session prior to workshop participants individually working though the exercises for that session. 2023-01-30 09:00:00 UTC 2023-02-03 17:00:00 UTC ACSPRI University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia University of Melbourne Melbourne Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 20 workshop open_to_all longitudinal dataStatistical Methodsmixed effectsquantitative

    Applied Statistical Procedures: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/applied-statistical-procedures-online This is an intermediate, applied course covering a range of the most commonly used statistical procedures. Research design, Experimental, Quasi-Experimental and Non-Experimental, will be covered so students can select the best design and statistical procedure for a research project, and to clarify exactly what claims can be made in relation to findings. It aims to provide participants with an ability to understand, run and interpret procedures. This course will further enhance your ability to understand research-based literature. The level falls between ‘Fundamentals of Statistics’, and the more detailed single procedure based courses. This course will provide a good foundation for progression to the more detailed courses in (Multiple) Regression, Factor Analysis, SEM and Latent Variables using Mplus. On completing this course you should be able to read and understand literature where these procedures are reported, select the appropriate statistical procedure for research, run the procedure, and report the results from an informed base of understanding. The course is taught from an applied prospective, with questions encouraged. The statistical package employed will be SPSS. No prior knowledge of SPSS is required. 2023-02-06 10:00:00 UTC 2023-02-10 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online, Australia Online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] workshop open_to_all StatisticsStatistical Methodsapplied statistics SPSS
  • Data Analysis in R: Online

    6 - 10 February 2023

    Data Analysis in R: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/data-analysis-in-r-online This course is intended for applied data analysts, including academics and postgraduate students, policy specialists and others. It will examine questions dealt with in public policy, the social sciences and industry, using real data. This includes surveys, and economics and public health data. This is a problem-based course for subject matter experts who want to use R to take their quantitative analysis to the next level. By the end of the week you will be able to better conduct descriptive analysis and regression in R, and will be able to create impressive looking data visualisations. R is open source and free. It is flexible, powerful and intuitive and it is excellent for data visualisation. As it is open source, R has thousands of developers in leading universities, corporate research labs and other institutions across the world. This means its capabilities tend to exceed competing software, with new packages added or updated daily. This is particularly the case for data visualisation, in which R tends to lead the pack. As there is no licence, you can take it with you wherever you go. No matter where you work, you don't have to change software packages when you change employers. Consequently, R has becoming increasingly popular for academic research, economics analysis and public policy development. This trend is only likely to continue. Being skilled in R will help build your personal capabilities and employment opportunities by making you a more flexible worker capable of undertaking analysis many other researchers and analysts cannot. 2023-02-06 10:00:00 UTC 2023-02-10 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online, Australia Online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all R studioR statisticsR statistical softwareIntroductory

  • Writing up a Qualitative PhD

    27 - 30 March 2023

    Writing up a Qualitative PhD https://dresa.org.au/events/writing-up-a-qualitative-phd Whether you are doing a traditional PhD or a PhD by publication, ‘writing up’ should never be something left to the end of your research. Instead, writing should be a continuous process, learning from your supervisor, your peers and your own mistakes. I examine how this writing up can be accomplished efficiently if rarely painlessly. This masterclass is taught via lectures, small group workshops followed by feedback sessions and one-to-ones with all participants. Whether you are just starting a research degree or in your final year, this is the course for you. Among the topics covered are: * The PhD as an apprenticeship. What ‘originality’ means. * Learning from your supervisor and your peer groups * The need for consistency. Fitting your research question and methodology to your research model. * Reassurance strategies when difficulties arise: the low bar in qualitative research. * Designing a methodology that allows for rapid data gathering and early data analysis. * Practical suggestions about when to write a literature review and what it should contain. * How to avoid dull methodology chapters. Keeping a research diary. * How to write credible and interesting data chapters. What to include and what to omit. * Concluding chapters that are not summaries but which stretch the imagination. * Writing publishable journal articles 2023-03-27 19:00:00 UTC 2023-03-30 21:30:00 UTC ACSPRI online, online, Australia online online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all Qualitative Researchqualitative dataQualitative PhDWriting up a PhD

    Data Analysis in R: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/data-analysis-in-r-online This course is intended for applied data analysts, including academics and postgraduate students, policy specialists and others. It will examine questions dealt with in public policy, the social sciences and industry, using real data. This includes surveys, and economics and public health data. This is a problem-based course for subject matter experts who want to use R to take their quantitative analysis to the next level. By the end of the week you will be able to better conduct descriptive analysis and regression in R, and will be able to create impressive looking data visualisations. R is open source and free. It is flexible, powerful and intuitive and it is excellent for data visualisation. As it is open source, R has thousands of developers in leading universities, corporate research labs and other institutions across the world. This means its capabilities tend to exceed competing software, with new packages added or updated daily. This is particularly the case for data visualisation, in which R tends to lead the pack. As there is no licence, you can take it with you wherever you go. No matter where you work, you don't have to change software packages when you change employers. Consequently, R has becoming increasingly popular for academic research, economics analysis and public policy development. This trend is only likely to continue. Being skilled in R will help build your personal capabilities and employment opportunities by making you a more flexible worker capable of undertaking analysis many other researchers and analysts cannot. 2023-02-06 10:00:00 UTC 2023-02-10 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online, Australia Online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all R studioR statisticsR statistical softwareIntroductory

  • Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis: Online

    13 - 17 February 2023

    Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/applied-longitudinal-data-analysis-online Longitudinal Data Analysis is a very popular statistical method in a range of fields including medicine, natural resource management, business and economics. As well as allowing a researcher to elicit the changes in a subject (person, business, etc) over time, longitudinal data is also exceedingly powerful as it allows the within-subject and between-subject variance to be estimated independently (generally allowing the parameters in the statistical model to be estimated with a much tighter accuracy than traditional models). This course provides an overview of Longitudinal Data Analysis. As well as the statistical theory, an overview of the many applications and capabilities of LDA is given. The course is not particularly mathematical, but instead places emphasis on the fundamental concepts of LDA and how it is used by applied researchers. The workshop will focus on linear mixed effects models, however we will also go through generalized linear mixed effects models and any new material a participant will need to understand in order to successfully use generalized LME’s. There will be exercises using both types of models. The computer exercises for this workshop will be conducted in Stata. Stata has been chosen as it provides both basic and advanced functionality for conducting longitudinal data analyses. A full set of exercises and solutions in Stata will be provided in this workshop, where they include the Stata syntax required to perform each individual exercise. In addition the workshop presenter will demonstrate how to use Stata for the first exercise in each session prior to workshop participants individually working though the exercises for that session. 2023-02-13 10:00:00 UTC 2023-02-17 17:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online, Australia Online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all longitudinal dataStatistical Methodsmixed effectsquantitative
  • Applied Structural Equation Modelling: Online

    13 - 17 February 2023

    Applied Structural Equation Modelling: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/applied-structural-equation-modelling-online Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) is used widely by researchers in a diverse array of fields to find and test complex relationships amongst observed (measured) variables and latent (unobserved) variables and amongst the latent variables themselves. SEM subsumes other analytical techniques (such as factor analysis, regression analysis and path analysis) into one omnibus approach to modeling relationships amongst observed and latent variables. This course is designed to introduce participants to a range of basic structural equation models and the use of the AMOS and/or Mplus software to estimate the model parameters. Detailed notes with worked examples and references will be provided as a basis for both the lecture and hands-on computing aspect of the course. The target audience for this course is post graduate students, academic staff and other researchers needing to learn how to run basic structural equation models using either the AMOS and/or Mplus software. 2023-02-13 10:00:00 UTC 2023-02-17 17:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online, Australia Online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all Structural equation modellingStatistical Methodsapplied statisticsquantitative

  • Writing up a Qualitative PhD

    27 - 30 March 2023

    Writing up a Qualitative PhD https://dresa.org.au/events/writing-up-a-qualitative-phd Whether you are doing a traditional PhD or a PhD by publication, ‘writing up’ should never be something left to the end of your research. Instead, writing should be a continuous process, learning from your supervisor, your peers and your own mistakes. I examine how this writing up can be accomplished efficiently if rarely painlessly. This masterclass is taught via lectures, small group workshops followed by feedback sessions and one-to-ones with all participants. Whether you are just starting a research degree or in your final year, this is the course for you. Among the topics covered are: * The PhD as an apprenticeship. What ‘originality’ means. * Learning from your supervisor and your peer groups * The need for consistency. Fitting your research question and methodology to your research model. * Reassurance strategies when difficulties arise: the low bar in qualitative research. * Designing a methodology that allows for rapid data gathering and early data analysis. * Practical suggestions about when to write a literature review and what it should contain. * How to avoid dull methodology chapters. Keeping a research diary. * How to write credible and interesting data chapters. What to include and what to omit. * Concluding chapters that are not summaries but which stretch the imagination. * Writing publishable journal articles 2023-03-27 19:00:00 UTC 2023-03-30 21:30:00 UTC ACSPRI online, online, Australia online online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all Qualitative Researchqualitative dataQualitative PhDWriting up a PhD
