  • 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
  • Fundamentals of Structural Equation Modelling: Online

    16 - 20 January 2023

    Fundamentals of Structural Equation Modelling: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/fundamentals-of-structural-equation-modelling-online Structural equation modelling—or structural equations with latent variables—is a very general statistical model and widely used method. For example, SEM is used in fundamental disciplines such as the social, economic and psychological sciences, the biological sciences, and applied disciplines such as education, health and marketing. SEM has become popular for several reasons, apart from its generality: (i) all SEM models can be represented visually, (ii) a standard notation helps researchers to communicate, and (iii) several software packages for estimating SEM models are readily available (e.g., AMOS, LISREL, Mplus, R). This course provides an overview of the fundamentals of SEM. As well as the statistical theory, an overview of the many applications and capabilities of SEM is given. The course is not particularly mathematical, but instead places emphasis on the fundamental concepts of SEM and how it is used by applied researchers. General aims of the course are for students to develop a readiness for using SEM software and to develop the requisite knowledge for applying SEM methods and models in an intelligent way. Note that participants may be invited to briefly present their own research on the last day of class. This exercise, along with the formal lecture material, might help participants to chart a direction forward in their study and application of SEM. 2023-01-16 10:00:00 UTC 2023-01-20 17:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online, Australia Online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all SEMStructural equation modellingStatistical Methodsquantitative
  • Social Media Network and Text Analysis : Online

    6 - 8 February 2023

    Social Media Network and Text Analysis : Online https://dresa.org.au/events/social-media-network-and-text-analysis-online This course introduces participants to approaches for collecting and analysing network and text data from social media, (Twitter, YouTube and Reddit) and the WWW (hyperlink networks). In terms of analysis, the focus is on the application of social network analysis (SNA) and quantitative text analysis to online data. While the main software used in the course is R, we also introduce Gephi for advanced visualisation. Data collection is via the VOSON R Packages (VOSON Dashboard, vosonSML, voson.tcn). We also cover other important R packages for network and text analysis such as: igraph (network analysis and visualisation), quanteda (quantitative analysis of textual data), tidytext (text mining), and wordcloud (text word clouds). The course will be particularly useful to academics and PhD students who want to become more computationally literate, and those from technical disciplines (e.g. computer science, engineering, information science) who want to become more familiar with social science approaches to analysing social media data. The course will also be useful for people from industry and government whose work involves quantitative analysis of social media data, e.g. for marketing, social research, public relations, brand management, journalism, opinion analysis. 2023-02-06 09:30:00 UTC 2023-02-08 17:30:00 UTC ACSPRI Online, Australia Online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all social network researchSocial network analysissocial media dataR statistical softwarequantitative
  • Fundamentals of Multiple Regression: Online

    6 - 10 February 2023

    Fundamentals of Multiple Regression: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/fundamentals-of-multiple-regression-online The course is designed for those who have limited knowledge and experience with multivariate statistical techniques and are seeking the knowledge and skills to use multiple regression for research at a post-graduate level and/or to publish in professional research journals. Particular attention is given to the application of multiple regression to substantive problems in the social and behavioral sciences. (See Course Program below.) By the end of the course, you will understand the principles of multiple regression, and be able to conduct regression analyses, interpret the results, obtain regression diagnostics to test the underlying model assumptions and write-up the results for publication. The course notes provide instructions for using the major statistical packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata) for regression. Participants who are considering regression analysis of their own data are encouraged and there will be time for individual consultations. This course provides the foundations necessary for progression to ‘Applied Multiple Regression Analysis’, and to subsequent advanced-level courses in structural equation modelling and multi-level analysis. 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 Multiple RegressionquantitativeStatisticsStatistical Methodsapplied statistics
