Experience first-hand how a Bayesian approach to data analysis can improve inference and increase understanding. And obtain practical experience with JAGS or WinBUGS, easy-to-use computer programs that allow the user to implement all kinds of Bayesian models.
August 22 – 23, 2019
The main purpose of this workshop is to familiarize participants with key Bayesian concepts in hypothesis testing. Concrete examples illustrate how to compute, report, and interpret Bayesian hypothesis tests for popular statistical models such as correlation, regression, t-test, ANOVA, and contingency tables. To facilitate the learning process we use JASP, a program whose attractive graphical user interface allows us to focus on core Bayesian concepts and principles, unburdened by the need to explain the detailed workings of an unfamiliar software program such as WinBUGS.
August 26 – 30, 2019
In this workshop, plenary lectures provide the theoretical background of Bayesian statistics, and practical computer exercises teach you how to apply the popular JAGS and WinBUGS software to a wide range of different statistical models. After completing this workshop, you will have gained not only a new understanding of statistics, but also the technical skills to implement models that are appropriate for the substantive hypotheses that you seek to test.
