Introduction to Behavioural data analysis using R (IBDA01)

14 October 2019 - 18 October 2019

£275.00 - £520.00

Course Overview:

This course aims to provide participants with the skills needed to analyse a wide range of behavioural data in the R statistical environment. We will focus on the linear model and the various ways it can be extended to accommodate the different kinds of data commonly encountered in behavioural research. Participants will learn how to model continuous, binary, count (including zero-inflated) and time-to-event data and how to include and interpret continuous and categorical predictors, interactions and random effects.

Intended Audience

Any researchers (from postgraduate students to senior investigators) interested in analysing behavioural data. Examples will be primarily from non-human animal behaviour studies, but the methods will also be applicable to many researchers studying human behaviour.
