Workshops

Introduction to Measurement

The workshop will cover basics on data theory, summated ratings scales, principal components analysis, factor analysis, and multidimensional scaling. We will also cover basic text analysis techniques.
Location: Centre for the Study of Democratic Citizenship, at McGill University, December January 8th, 2016

Longitudinal Data analysis and Multilevel Modelling

This workshop will introduce methods for running multilevel models and for analyzing time series and panel data. Multilevel methods will be introduced from a Bayesian perspective. However, students will be exposed to both Bayesian and frequentist approaches.

Multilevel Bayesian Modelling

This is an introductory workshop on multilevel models. The idea is to show simple ways to run relatively complex multilevel models using Bayesian methods. The substantive example used will involve fitting models of party preferences along the lines of what van der Eijk et al. (2006) propose, but using a simpler modelling strategy. The focus will be on understanding multilevel models.

Scaling Techniques in Political Science

The workshop covers basics on data theory, summated ratings scales, principal components analysis, factor analysis, and multidimensional scaling. I also show participants how to present data using graphical methods.

Making easier and better graphs in R

An introduction to R. This workshop goes over the steps necessary to read in data, run models, and make easy and effective graphs for displaying results using the effects package in R.
Location: Canada Research Chair in Electoral Studies, at the Université de Montréal, October 2nd, 2013.
