Methods crash courses-AISSR Flying Circus (March 2018)

In March 2018, the Methods Expertise Center of the AISSR will offer its annual Flying Circus of crash courses on various methods, usually half a day for each.

If less than four people are interested in a course, we try to direct them to other institutions or we give them personal advice rather than organizing a crash course, though. Our courses are for free for AISSR members and open to a limited number of Research Master students and teachers who are not AISSR members.
