Introduction to statistical modelling for psychologists in R (IPSY03)

30th March 2020 - 3rd April 2020

£275.00 - £540.00

Course Overview:

This course will provide an introduction to working with real-life data typical of those encountered in the field of psychology. The course will be delivered by Dr. Dale Barr and Dr. Luc Bussière, who are practicing academics in the fields of psychology and evolutionary biology respectively, with many years of expertise with R and statistical modelling as both scientists and instructors.  This five-day course will consist of series of modules (each lasting roughly half a day) covering topics including the basic ‘canon’ of psychological statistics (t-test, correlation/regression, ANOVA) presented within the framework of general linear models, and building up to logistic regression and linear mixed-effects modelling. Along the way you will gain in-depth experience in data wrangling using the R ‘tidyverse’, data and model visualisation and plotting, as well as exploring and understanding model diagnostics. Classes will consist of a mixture of lectures and practical exercises designed to either build required skills for future modules or to perform a family of analyses that is frequently encountered in the psychological literature.

Intended Audience

Any researchers (from postgraduate students to senior investigators) wanting to learn how to correctly analyse data typical to the field of psychology using the R programming language.
