Introduction to Bayesian hierarchical modelling using R (IBHM03)

8 July 2019 - 12 July 2019
PS statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland, G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This course will cover introductory hierarchical modelling for real-world data sets from a Bayesian perspective. These methods lie at the forefront of statistics research and are a vital tool in the scientist’s toolbox. The course focuses on introducing concepts and demonstrating good practice in hierarchical models. All methods are demonstrated with data sets which participants can run themselves. Participants will be taught how to fit hierarchical models using the Bayesian modelling software Jags and Stan through the R…

Generalised Linear (MIXED) (GLMM), Nonlinear (NLGLM) And General Additive Models (MIXED) (GAMM) (GNAM01)

9 September 2019 - 13 September 2019
PS statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland, G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This course provides a general introduction to nonlinear regression analysis, covering major topics including, but not limited to, general and generalized linear models, generalized additive models, spline and radial basis function regression, and Gaussian process regression. We approach the general topic of nonlinear regression by showing how the powerful and flexible statistical modelling framework of general and generalized linear models, and their multilevel counterparts, can be extended to handle nonlinear relationships between predictor and outcome variables. We begin…

Structural Equation Models, Path Analysis, Causal Modelling and Latent Variable Models Using R

16 September 2019 - 20 September 2019
PS statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland, G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This course provides a comprehensive introduction to a set of inter-related topics of widespread applicability in the social social sciences: structural equation modelling, path analysis, causal modelling, mediation analysis, latent variable modelling (including factor analysis and latent class analysis), Bayesian networks, graphical models, and other related topics. The course begins with a thorough review, both practical and theoretical, of regression modelling, particularly on general and generalized linear regression. We then turn to the topic of path analysis. At…

Introduction to Behavioural data analysis using R (IBDA01)

14 October 2019 - 18 October 2019
PS statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland, G5 8LB United Kingdom

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.…

Behavioural data analysis using maximum likelihood in R (BDML02)

4 November 2019 - 8 November 2019
PS statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland, G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This 5-day course will involve a combination of lectures and practical sessions. Students will learn to build and fit custom models for analysing behavioural data using maximum likelihood techniques in R. This flexible approach allows a researcher to a) use a statistical model that directly represents their hypothesis, in cases where standard models are not appropriate and b) better understand how standard statistical models (e.g. GLMs) are fitted, many of which are fitted by maximum likelihood. Students will…

Introduction to Bayesian data analysis for social and behavioural sciences using R and Stan (BDRS02)

4 November 2019 - 8 November 2019
PS statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland, G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This course provides a general introduction to Bayesian data analysis using R and the Bayesian probabilistic programming language Stan. We begin with a gentle introduction to all the fundamental principles and concepts of Bayesian data analysis: the likelihood function, prior distributions, posterior distributions, high posterior density intervals, posterior predictive distributions, marginal likelihoods, Bayes factors, etc. We will do this using some simple probabilistic models that are easy to understand and easy to work with. We then proceed to…
