  • Introduction to Social Network Research and Analysis: Online

    16 - 20 January 2023

    Introduction to Social Network Research and Analysis: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-social-network-research-and-analysis-online This course is designed for social researchers using qualitative and mixed methods. The course builds from the basic, pioneering methodologies of Social Network Analysis (SNA): survey-based egonet SNA and sociometric, "whole network' SNA, and their extensions, to network sensitive ethnographies, community networks, web-based network surveys and research on social media activities. The course reviews the possibilities for working with rich network data from interview or online sources and the unique perspectives that qualitative and social research traditions bring to these tasks. The course explores ways to best manage and explore different kinds of network data in Excel, uses UCINET and NetDraw to produce network diagrams and descriptive statistics. We review other appropriate software related to participants' needs. The course serves as a transition to the associated ACSPRI courses Network Analysis in Social, Business and Political Research and Big Data Analysis for Social Scientists. Network research designs covered in this course are: * Surveys using ego-centric network (egonet) methods * Network-sensitive ethnographies * Sociometric (‘round robin’) ‘whole network’ studies and small group research * Associational/ Affiliation (‘2-mode’) networks (including ethological studies) * Cognitive mapping and socio-cognitive mapping (SCM) For each methodology we consider the best ways to code and manage raw data, the most efficient formats for importing such data into visualisation and analysis software and appropriate measures and statistics for reporting findings. We also discuss the process of relating validated findings to broader research questions (‘meta-inference’), extrapolating them to other settings and associated questions of research design. 2023-01-16 09:30:00 UTC 2023-01-20 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online Online ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all social network researchSocial network analysisMixed MethodsQualitative ResearchQualitative methodssocial media data

  • Fundamentals of Statistics: Online

    16 - 20 January 2023

    Fundamentals of Statistics: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/fundamentals-of-statistics-online 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 with the emphasis on statistical techniques applicable to the social sciences, although these introductory techniques are also appropriate to the health sciences. Key examples from journal articles will be presented to illustrate the use and reporting of the statistical techniques covered in this unit. Our approach to learning will be largely non-mathematical, concentrating on concepts rather than mathematical theory. Participants familiar with the use of a statistical software package, but lacking statistical training should also start with this course. SOFTWARE The course will be using the free and open-source software jamovi. The software jamovi 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 in many ways is easier to use. 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 either jamovi or IBM Statistics v28. 2023-01-16 10:00:00 UTC 2023-01-20 16:30:00 UTC ACSPRI online, Australia online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all Fundamentals of StatisticsStatistical MethodsJamoviquantitativeStatistics
