ONLINE COURSE – Introduction to mixed models using R and Rstudio (IMMR03) This course will be delivered live

25 November 2020 - 26 November 2020

£275.00

This course will now be delivered live by video link in light of travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.

This is a ‘LIVE COURSE’ – the instructor will be delivering lectures and coaching attendees through the accompanying computer practical’s via video link, a good internet connection is essential.

TIME ZONE – Western European Time +1 – however all sessions will be recorded and made available allowing attendees from different time zones to follow a day behind with an additional 1/2 days support after the official course finish date (please email oliverhooker@prstatistics.com for full details or to discuss how we can accommodate you).

Course Overview:

In this two day course, we provide a comprehensive practical and theoretical introduction to multilevel models, also known as hierarchical or mixed effects models. We will focus primarily on multilevel linear models, but also cover multilevel generalized linear models. Likewise, we will also describe Bayesian approaches to multilevel modelling. On Day 1, we will begin by focusing on random effects multilevel models. These models make it clear how multilevel models are in fact models of models. In addition, random effects models serve as a solid basis for understanding mixed effects, i.e. fixed and random effects, models. In this coverage of random effects, we will also cover the important concepts of statistical shrinkage in the estimation of effects, as well as intraclass correlation. We then proceed to cover linear mixed effects models, particularly focusing on varying intercept and/or varying slopes regresssion models. On Day 2, we cover further aspects of linear mixed effects models, including multilevel models for nested and crossed data data, and group level predictor variables. On Day 2, we also cover Bayesian approaches to multilevel levels using the brms R package.
