Introductory Quantitative Training Opportunities at the APS Convention in Chicago
We’re often asked if there are resources that offer brief introductions to various methodological techniques that can help determine if a particular methodology might be of use in a given research application. One excellent source of introductory workshops is available through the Annual Convention for the Association for Psychological Science (APS). The 2016 APS convention will be held May 26-29 in Chicago and is offering a host of high-quality introductory workshops in a variety of methodological topics taught by many leaders in the field of methodology. Topics include introduction to R, dyadic data analysis, improving reproducibility, methodological approaches to designing adaptive interventions, Bayesian hypothesis testing, and the theory and practice of machine learning, among many others. Most workshops range between two and four hours and offer initial exposure to a number of important quantitative topics in the social and behavioral sciences.
