9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Hierarchical Linear Modelling

This two-day advanced multivariate statistics course provides an introduction to applied analyses of multilevel models. Students will learn how to use multilevel models for analyzing clustered data (e.g., persons nested in groups) and longitudinal data, such as flexible strategies for modeling change and individual differences in change.

Multilevel models are known by many synonyms (hierarchical linear models, general linear mixed models). The defining feature of these models is their capacity to provide quantification and prediction of random variance due to multiple sampling dimensions (across occasions, persons, or groups). Multilevel models are useful in analyzing clustered data (e.g., persons nested in groups), in which one wishes to examine predictors pertaining to individuals or to groups. Multilevel models also offer many advantages for analyzing longitudinal data, such as flexible strategies for modeling change and individual differences in change, the possibility of examining time-invariant or time-varying predictor effects, and the use of all available complete observations.

This course will serve as an applied introduction to multilevel models for both longitudinal and clustered data, as well as combinations thereof. We build upon familiar regression models and expand into multilevel regression models from that starting point.

This course is a part of a series offered by the Laurier Summer Institute of Research Methods. You can register for this course and others running from July 15 to 26. Students (from any university) get 10% off. Faculty, staff and students paying by internal transfer also save on the tax.

  • 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Qualitative Approaches: Finding the Right Fit

    Have you ever wondered about qualitative research and how you can use it for your own work?

    Together, in this full-day course, we will explore the following five approaches to qualitative research: case study, ethnography, grounded theory, narrative research, and phenomenology.

    For each approach we will discuss:

    • Origins and defining features
    • Associated methods
    • Common data analysis and presentation techniques
    • Challenges and/or ethical considerations

    No prerequisites but some understanding of the fundamentals of qualitative research is assumed. Please be prepared for group discussions to help clarify and reinforce course concepts.

    Participants who wish to do some reading in advance (not mandatory) may wish to explore the following reference as background reading for the session:

    • Creswell, J., & Poth, C. (2017). Qualitative inquiry & research design: Choosing among five approaches (4th ed.). Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage.

    A more comprehensive list of resources will be provided at the end of the course.
