Workshop Series

Fall & Spring: Quantitative Methods Workshops

The Statistical Consulting Studio holds several workshops each during fall and spring semesters. The topics are chosen to benefit a broad range of researchers with various backgrounds. While these classes are free for all faculty and students in the Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services, space is limited. Please register early to ensure a seat.

This is an excellent opportunity to expand your analysis toolbox. This workshop series will cover some material not usually found in the traditional quantitative courses, but that have broad application within our college. 

You will be introduced to newer methods that you may encounter in journals or find to be applicable within your own research.   The main focus will be on foundational concepts with some direct application (minor software), but will not reach the depth or breadth of a full class.

If you would like to receive periodic emails announcing new sessions and links to register, Subscribe to the Workshop ListServe.

Materials for current and past workshops may be accessed on Open Science Framework.
