Tuesday, 21 March 2017 - 10:00am to 12:00pm
Methods like Regression and ANOVA model the mean structure of the observed data while making specific assumptions about the variance. Mixed effects models allow us to model the variance structure of the data as well as the mean. Data that contain repeated measurements on the same statistical unit or clusters of related statistical units are examples when mixed effects models should be used. NOTE: Due to the large # of statistical software available, this session will not be about any specific software but, rather, the methodology behind the software.
Wednesday, 22 March 2017 - 9:00am to 5:00pm
Learning teams of approximately five people each will be formed at the beginning of this session and will work together throughout the session. This will enable the participants to enhance their learning from each other, to experience the development of a strong team, and to develop a model of the culture that they will want to create and execute their projects.

To be able to talk and write about your work in clear, accessible language to just about anyone is now mandatory if you want to get on.
