Our lives play out through the relationships we maintain with others. Much social research assumes that these relationships can be ignored, and focuses instead on how individual attributes influence such outcomes as success, health, and sense of well-being. Social network research takes a contrary view, placing explanatory power in the connections we have to others and how the overall patterning of those connections contributes to the important outcomes in our lives.
Starting September 24 and concluding on September 26, 2020, we are offering this seminar as a 3-day synchronous*, remote workshop for the first time. Each day will consist of a 4-hour, live morning lecture held via the free video-conferencing software Zoom. Participants are encouraged to join the lecture live, but will have the opportunity to view the recorded session later in the day if they are unable to attend at the scheduled time.
Each lecture session will conclude with a hands-on exercise reviewing the content covered, to be completed on your own. An additional session will be held Thursday and Friday afternoons as an “office hour”, where participants can review the exercise results with the instructor and ask any questions.
*We understand that scheduling is difficult during this unpredictable time. If you prefer, you may take all or part of the course asynchronously. The video recordings will be made available within 24 hours of each session, meaning that you will get all of the class content and discussions even if you cannot participate synchronously.
The fee of $795 includes all course materials.
PayPal and all major credit cards are accepted.
