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.

Quantitative Topics Workshop Series

This is an excellent opportunity to expand your analysis toolbox, for faculty and graduate students alike. 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. 

Video conferencing through ZOOM will be available for distance attendance.
