A complete guide to mixed models (including temporal and spatial autocorrelation) MMTS01

21 October 2019 - 25 October 2019


Course Overview:

This course will cover advanced statistics regarding the analysis of data using comprehensive and state-of-the-art techniques. All methods will be illustrated using the free, open-source software package R. The course is designed for attendees that have a basic knowledge of R and elementary statistics and wish to advance this to up-to-date journal publication or conference proceedings standards. The course will cover mixed effects models, model selection and multi-model inference, generalized linear models (i.e. analysis of non-normally distributed datasets), random and fixed effects, variance nesting and accounting for the spatial and temporal autocorrelation in the analysis. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the models being fitted, and be able interpret the results appropriately as well as produce quality graphs. Participants are encouraged to bring their own data sets for applying the techniques taught as well as potential discussion with the course tutor.

This workshop is ideal for any scientists seeking an advancement to quantitative data analysis coming from diverse scientific disciplines such as biology, ecology, medicine, psychology, economics, or education. No prior knowledge of the methods that will be covred is required. However basic prior R knowledge is required (loading data, loading R packages, basic R environment and basic R commands), as well as basic statistics knowledge, (what is a linear regression, what is ANOVA) are required.
