Methods crash courses-AISSR Flying Circus (March 2018)

In Spring 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.

To match  the offerings with your interests, please tell us January 12 the latest what you want, in an email to: Jeroen Bruggeman,, with subject [MEC]

To give you an impression but no promise, these courses we had during the past several years: Atlas.ti [do you want introductory or advanced?], GIS, Social Network Analysis, LaTeX, Uses and interpretations of regression coefficients, Multivariate and multilevel statistics, Visual methods, Big data [do you want to scrape or analyze texts or numbers?], Using UvA’s Supercomputer [for what?], Introduction to R [texts or numbers?], Introduction to Python [texts or numbers?], among others.

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.

More information will follow. You can also visit the websection of the AISSR Methods Expertise Centre.
