Digital Method of the Month: Focus on Statistical Methods Part 1 - Descriptive vs Inferential

Digital Method of the Month: Text  Analysis



The method of this month is Statistics. Since the topic is so vast we are going to have three separate meetings focusing on different aspects of working with statistics in research.

This first meeting will focus on a general introduction and on the difference between descriptive and inferential statistics. Part 2 will focus on linear modelling and part 3 will focus on simulation.

Have you seen a presentation on digital research methods and wondered if they are applicable to your work? Are you interested in learning new digital skills but unsure where to start?

This is the right place for you!

The digital method of the month meeting is a safe space to freely discuss the practicalities of learning and implementing a new digital skill in your research.

Each month we select a method, and we have an honest and practical discussion on what it takes to learn and master it. How much time will it take to get the basics? What are the software options available? What are the most common pitfalls? Where can you find more info on the subject? Etc...

Join us to discuss the main techniques and technologies available, and their limitations and potentials.

This is a beginner-level event, and no previous knowledge of the method is required.

To attend this event, you will have to join the associated Microsoft Teams group. The link to join the group will be sent to the attendees prior to the course start date, so please make sure to do so in advance.


This Digital Method of the Month will be taught by Javiera Alfaro Chat and Rhys Davies.
