Course program 2018

Growth Curve Analysis Workshop

Lecturer: Dan Mirman (University of Alabama at Birmingham)

Course content: This two-day workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to using growth curve analysis (GCA) to analyse longitudinal or time course data, with a particular focus on eye-tracking data. Day 1 will cover the basics of GCA and will include time for participants to implement the analyses using their own data or example data sets. Day 2 will address advanced topics, particularly the quantification and analysis of individual differences, leaving time for participants to implement the analyses using their own data or example data sets. The workshop will be conducted in R using the lme4 package for fitting GCA models and will include an introduction to using the ggplot2 package for plotting data and model fits. Participants are expected to have basic familiarity with R, but no specific knowledge of the ggplot2 or lme4 packages.

Target group: Everyone interested

Date: March 13th-14th, 2018, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Venue: CIP-Pool Psychology, Heinrich-Düker-Weg 12, Room 0.481

Registration period: February 20th-March 10th, 2018, via Email to Klara Kittler

Data Analysis Workshop

Lecturer: Rick Scavetta

Course content: This workshop offers an introduction into data analysis with the software package R. Previous experience with the program is not required. The participants are asked to bring their own laptops and data sets. During the practical parts of the course, participants have the opportunity to work with their own datasets on own questions and problems.

During the course, basic statistical procedures will be applied and data visualizations will be produced, but note that this course is not an Introduction to Statistical Analysis course.

Further information on the course can be found here.

Target group: Early to intermediate-stage PhD students who have data they can work with in the workshop
