Social Science Research Committee Workshop Series: Introduction to Statistics

December 14, 2020

In collaboration with the Office of Research & Innovation, the Social Science Research Committee (SSRC) will offer three workshops on introduction to statistics via Zoom, as part of SSRC's research methodology initiative. The main goal of this workshop series is to provide basic statistical knowledge to qualitative researchers who are considering adding quantitative analysis to their research portfolio. This series cannot replace systematic statistical training. We encourage interested colleagues to take statistical courses to better their skill development (see Drexel course catalog for more details on statistics course offerings by multiple schools). Another useful approach to learning statistics is to work with quantitative researchers on research projects (i.e., learning by doing).

Mon, Jan 4, 2021; 10:00am to 12:00pm (Data Cleaning)
Wed, Jan 6, 2021; 10:00am to 12:00pm (Statistical Distribution)
Fri, Jan 8 2021; 10:00am to 12:00pm (Preparing to Use (and interpret) a Linear Regression Model)

We will continue our effective format of e-learning, meaning to show a SSRC-subscribed video to participants. We will leave about 20-30 min for participants to discuss each topic and their related interests.

In 2021, we will continue our trainings on advanced statistical analysis; we are also planning an event related to qualitative research methods.

Please REGISTER no later than Dec 20, 2020. We will send registered participants a Zoom link before the first workshop.

The Social Science Research Committee (SSRC) aims at building a vibrant social science research community at Drexel University. We are open to faculty members who are interested in human social behavior from all academic fields. In the past year, we have organized method training, civic engagement research forum, visit to DC to meet federal grant officers, etc. We are planning activities to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration between social and natural/engineering sciences, longer-term collaboration between faculty and interested undergraduate students, etc.

If you are interested in joining the SSRC, please submit a request to Giang Nguyen to join the group. Researchers from all academic fields are welcome.
