online methods courses at the university of florida

this is to let everyone know about a series of online courses on research methods …

these are not moocs … they are limited to 20 participants, and combine online lectures and exercises with live, interactive sessions – sort of online office hours. these sessions are archived, so anyone who can’t make the live sessions can log at any time, and go back over the lessons.

we have five courses this summer:

(may 11-june 19)

text analysis

network analysis

methods of behavioral observation

geospatial analysis

 

(june 27-august 7)

video analysis

all of these courses were developed with support from nsf as full, 45-contact hour courses. these courses carry three optional graduate credits at the university of florida – that is, they may be taken for university credit or as continuing education. the tuition of $1,200 per course makes the program self-sustaining.

more info, including syllabi, registration forms, etc. are all online, HERE

or contact me personally  if you have questions about any of the courses.
