Consultation 2.0

Consultation 2.0 is a continuing series of workshops on popular methodological and statistical topics in the social and behavioral sciences. Each workshop discusses one topic extensively. Typically, a workshop consists of a keynote lecture by an expert in the field, a shorter hands-on lecture on software, one or two short presentations by researchers who have dealt with the problems in practice, and a question and answer session.

Consultation 2.0 is organized under the auspices of VBSP. Unless stated otherwise, the workshops are taught in English. The prerequisite level of knowledge of methods, statistics, and software changes across workshops. Consultation 2.0 is free for faculty and staff of the Research Institute of Child Development and Education and VBSP members. Other participants pay €50 to cover organizational expenses. Workshop material will be sent to all participants a week in advance. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop computer.

Next workshop:

Conducting Meta-Analytic Structural Equation Modeling with R

Meta-analytic structural equation modeling (MASEM) combines the techniques of meta-analysis and structural equation modeling to synthesize correlation matrices and to fit hypothesized models on the combined correlation matrix. In this workshop, we will illustrate how to conduct MASEM with R. Participants who are not familiar with the program R can attend the mini-workshop 'Getting started with R' prior to this workshop. Participants have to bring their own notebooks to the workshop.
