Multilevel models are a class of regression models for data that have a hierarchical (or nested) structure. Common examples of such data structures are students nested within schools or classrooms, patients nested within hospitals, or survey respondents nested within countries. Using regression techniques that ignore this hierarchical structure (such as ordinary least squares) can lead to incorrect results because such methods assume that all observations are independent. Perhaps more important, using inappropriate techniques (like pooling or aggregating) prevents researchers from asking substantively interesting questions about how processes work at different levels.

Starting February 11, we are offering this seminar as a 3-day synchronous*, remote workshop. Each day will consist of a 4-hour live lecture held via the free video-conferencing software Zoom. You are encouraged to join the lecture live, but will have the opportunity to view the recorded session later in the day if you are unable to attend at the scheduled time.

The course will run from Thursday, February 11, 2021 – Saturday, February 13, 2021.

Each day will follow this schedule:

10:00am-2:00pm ET: Live lecture via Zoom

4:00pm-5:00pm ET: Live “office hour” via Zoom (Thursday and Friday only)

The fee of $895 includes all course materials. PayPal and all major credit cards are accepted.
