We are putting together final details for the Multilevel Modelling events running in Edinburgh in September.
A lecture by Professor Kelvyn Jones from the University of Bristol on ‘Modelling Contextuality and Heterogeneity with Multilevel Models’ takes place at Surgeon’s Hall on the evening of 6th of September and is free for anyone to attend. This talk aims to show the potential of multilevel models making the argument without algebra but graphically and through examples.This talk aims to show the potential of multilevel models making the argument without algebra but graphically and through examples.
The lecture will be followed by a 2 day hands on practical training course in Multilevel Modelling at the University of Edinburgh. Applications are currently open for this event with a deadline of 8th August.
This course will explore the use of multilevel models and will emphasise their practical application in social sciences. The main focus will be on multilevel models for continuous, binary and multinomial outcomes, with shorter introductory sessions on models for ordinal and count outcomes. Analyses will be illustrated using MLwiN (a package dedicated to multilevel modelling available free to academics) and lectures will be combined with practical sessions in order to reinforce concepts.
Further information and registration for both of these events is available at http://www.aqmen.ac.uk/events
