Tuesday 19 October
A workshop on formulating a research strategy and choosing appropriate design and statistical tools
2.00 – 4.00pm, Room 2.017, Arthur Lewis Building, University of Manchester
Simon French of the Manchester Business School will provide an introductory workshop to help new researchers plan their project.
The workshop will outline a framework for research planning, the setting of research questions and the methods by which we should address these. The framework allows one to think about how one interprets statistical methods, when one can look to confirmatory approaches and when one should be content with more exploratory statistics. It will also include some other ‘problem structuring’ tools from operational research and management that help one explore and represent the issues in ways that act as an aide memoire during the conduct of the research and also help communicate the background.
Wednesday 10 November
Multilevel modelling day
10.00 – 4.30, Room 3.204, University Place, University of Manchester
This day brings together a range of multilevel modelling applications across the University of Manchester.

The day should be of interest to all those who are using, or planning to use multilevel modelling in their research.
