Synopsis

This Workshop is tailored for scholars with significant research experience beyond their PhD, and organised on a flexible basis to meet specific methodological needs.

Tamás will cover a broad span of statistical and formal methods. Depending on participants’ needs, this may include aspects of survey and experimental design, quality control, missing data, methods of causal analysis, graphical modelling (aka Bayesian networks), and methods for the detection and analysis of higher dimensional interactions. Some issues of ‘mixed’ methods designs, with a strong quantitative component, may also be covered.

Long Course Outline
If you are an experienced scholar with significant research experience beyond your PhD, and/or if you occupy a senior academic role, this Workshop is for you.

Typical research methods needs / challenges you might face include:

  • writing up the methods section of a research project
  • choosing the appropriate method(s) for a funded project
  • arbitrating between methodological options
  • updating your knowledge of recent evolutions in methods applicable to your field
  • troubleshooting your own methods use
  • learning which methods experts to contact for what
  • getting advice on methods training for your team members
  • receiving feedback on a syllabus you are putting together
  • getting advice on methodological topics in existing syllabi
  • writing up methods sections of publications (articles, books, reports, etc)

We recognise that time is scarce for seasoned scholars like you. This Workshop offers you a time-efficient formula to get tailored advice from an expert team.

This Workshop is organised on a flexible basis to meet your specific needs. It covers a broad span of statistical and formal methods. Depending on participants’ needs, this may include aspects of survey and experimental design, quality control, missing data, methods of causal analysis, graphical modelling (aka Bayesian networks), and methods for the detection and analysis of higher dimensional interactions. Some issues of ‘mixed’ methods designs, with a strong quantitative component, may also be covered.

This is a fully interactive Workshop. However, if you wish, training updates can be organised à la carte, and training resources provided.

Deadline for registration: Monday 17 December 2018
This workshop runs in parallel with a "Multi-Method Designs, Case-oriented and Comparative Methods" one, run by Beno?t Rihoux (UCLouvain) and Nena Oana (CEU Budapest) ? see: https://ecpr.eu/Events/PanelDetails.aspx?PanelID=8396&EventID=127

Feel free to contact Tamas Rudas (rudas@tarki.hu) and Sanja Hajdinjak (sanja.hajdinjak@univie.ac.at) if you or another experienced researcher within your team would be potentially interested in the workshop.

We invite those interested in participating in these two workshops to register before 17th of December 2018 through the ECPR Winter School form
