  • Research Essentials : Analysing your Data

    8 February 2023

    Research Essentials : Analysing your Data https://dresa.org.au/events/research-essentials-analysing-your-data-ec488452-3cce-442d-8a8d-f1cbd293f099 **Research Essentials - Analysing your data** This workshop presents methods and concepts that will help you create world-changing research worthy of top-tier journals. We introduce the concept of a research workflow, a series of defined steps that will assist you in thinking about your data and preparing it for statistical analysis. We introduce you to the resources available from both Sydney Informatics Hub and across the University that will support you in proceeding from hypothesis generation all the way through to publication. Data analysis concepts will be covered in detail, including: how experimental design fits into hypothesis generation and your final publication; how to manage your analysis data and Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) - an essential and often-overlooked stage of data analysis for determining the appropriate statistical methods to apply in your research. We will show you some of the more advanced statistical analysis methods to give you and idea of what is possible. Note that this workshop does not require knowledge of or use of specific statistics software. The analysis methods may be performed using a range of commonly available software through the university. **Attendance options:** You will get the most out of this session by attending in person.

  • Linear Models 1

    22 February 2023

    Linear Models 1 https://dresa.org.au/events/linear-models-1 **Linear Models 1: Linear regression, ANOVA, ANCOVA and repeated measures (a simple mixed model)** focuses on Practical Data Analysis by presenting Statistical Workflows applicable in any software for 4 of the most common univariate analyses: linear regression, ANOVA, ANCOVA, and repeated measures (a simple mixed model). All assuming a normal (gaussian) residual. These workflows can be easily extended to more complex models. The R code used to create output is also included. This is one of 3 workshops for researchers interested in statistical methods such as linear regression, ANOVA, ANCOVA, mixed models, logistic/binary and count (Poisson) regression. Each one builds on the preceding workshops and together they show how all these analyses can be performed using the same easy to understand Generalised Linear Mixed Model (GLMM) framework and workflow. As well as how they can be used to analyse experimental designs such as Control vs Treatment, Randomised Control Trials (RCTs), Before After Control Impact (BACI) analysis, repeated measures plus many more. There is also a 4th complementary workshop called Statistical Model Building which we recommend for those experienced with Linear Models or who have done at least the first 2 of our workshops. The material is organised around Statistical Workflows applicable in any software that give step by step instructions on how to do the analysis including assumption testing, model interpretation and presentation of results. **Attendance options:** You will get the most out of this session by attending in person. This way allows you to interact with the presenters, ask questions directly, and catch up after the session. Please only choose online if circumstances prevent you from attending campus. **In person @Camden:** Choose the "In person" ticket option. **Online:** Choose the "Online Zoom" ticket option.

  • Linear Models 2

    22 February 2023

    Linear Models 2 https://dresa.org.au/events/linear-models-2 **Linear Models 2: Logistic and Poisson/count regression-an introduction to Generalised Linear Models (GLM)**, focuses on Practical data analysis by presenting statistical workflows applicable in any software for two of the more common GLMMs: Logistic regression for binary data (using a Binomial distribution); and Poisson/count regression for count data (using a Poisson distribution). The GLM framework is also described in detail. The R code used to create output is also included. This is the second of 3 workshops for researchers interested in statistical methods such as linear regression, ANOVA, ANCOVA, mixed models, logistic/binary and count (Poisson) regression. Each one builds on the preceding workshops and together they show how all these analyses can be performed using the same easy to understand Generalised Linear Mixed Model (GLMM) framework and workflow. As well as how they can be used to analyse experimental designs such as Control vs Treatment, Randomised Control Trials (RCTs), Before After Control Impact (BACI) analysis, repeated measures plus many more. There is also a 4th complementary workshop called Statistical Model Building which we recommend for those experienced with Linear Models or who have done at least the first 2 of our workshops. The material is organised around statistical workflows applicable in any software that give step by step instructions on how to do the analysis including assumption testing, model interpretation and presentation of results. **Attendance options:** **In person:** Choose the "In person" ticket option. University rules governing COVID related requirements will apply in the venue. In the event that in person delivery is not possible, you will be provided with the Zoom link for remote attendance. **Online:** Choose the "Online Zoom" ticket option.

    Statistical Model Building https://dresa.org.au/events/statistical-model-building-b237728b-db09-4388-9bab-2e4646f906d7 This workshop examines and illustrates the key aspects and strategies of statistical model building to help you answer your research question, avoid common pitfalls, erroneous models and incorrect conclusions. Appropriate statistical model building will help you to gain knowledge as opposed to simply getting the best prediction (although that can be a goal as well). We will focus on concepts such as variable selection, multi-collinearity, interactions, selecting a model building strategy, comparing models and evaluating models. In general, these concepts are useful for any statistical model building. This workshop will provide generalised linear regression model examples. The focus will be on practical application of concepts so mathematical descriptions will be kept to a minimum. **Attendance options:** You will get the most out of this session by attending in person. This way allows you to interact with the presenters, ask questions directly, and catch up after the session. Please only choose online if circumstances prevent you from attending campus. **In person @Camperdown:** Choose the "In person" ticket option. **Online:** Choose the "Online Zoom" ticket option.

All assuming a normal (gaussian) residual. These workflows can be easily extended to more complex models. The R code used to create output is also included. This is one of 3 workshops for researchers interested in statistical methods such as linear regression, ANOVA, ANCOVA, mixed models, logistic/binary and count (Poisson) regression. Each one builds on the preceding workshops and together they show how all these analyses can be performed using the same easy to understand Generalised Linear Mixed Model (GLMM) framework and workflow. As well as how they can be used to analyse experimental designs such as Control vs Treatment, Randomised Control Trials (RCTs), Before After Control Impact (BACI) analysis, repeated measures plus many more. There is also a 4th complementary workshop called Statistical Model Building which we recommend for those experienced with Linear Models or who have done at least the first 2 of our workshops. The material is organised around Statistical Workflows applicable in any software that give step by step instructions on how to do the analysis including assumption testing, model interpretation and presentation of results. **Attendance options:** You will get the most out of this session by attending in person.

    Statistical Model Building https://dresa.org.au/events/statistical-model-building-b237728b-db09-4388-9bab-2e4646f906d7 This workshop examines and illustrates the key aspects and strategies of statistical model building to help you answer your research question, avoid common pitfalls, erroneous models and incorrect conclusions. Appropriate statistical model building will help you to gain knowledge as opposed to simply getting the best prediction (although that can be a goal as well). We will focus on concepts such as variable selection, multi-collinearity, interactions, selecting a model building strategy, comparing models and evaluating models. In general, these concepts are useful for any statistical model building. This workshop will provide generalised linear regression model examples. The focus will be on practical application of concepts so mathematical descriptions will be kept to a minimum. **Attendance options:** You will get the most out of this session by attending in person.
