Research Workshop in Multilevel Modelling using MLwiN (5 - 7 September 2011)

29 March 2011

This workshop is designed for researchers who have some experience of multilevel modelling, but now wish to apply it to their own data.

Tutors: William Browne, Kelvyn Jones, George Leckie, Mark Lyons-Amos, Rebecca Pillinger and Fiona Steele

This workshop is designed for researchers who have some experience of multilevel modelling, but now wish to apply it to their own data.  The workshop will be limited to 12 participants, with most of the time given to analysis of participants’ own data using the MLwiN software. Participants should be prepared to present their research to the rest of the group, including results from analyses conducted during the workshop.  There may also be more formal lectures (e.g. on significance testing, or reporting results of a multilevel analysis), but their specific content will depend on participants’ needs.

Workshop objectives

This is an intensive workshop which aims to take researchers to a point where they have the skills and confidence to specify multilevel models appropriate to their research questions, to estimate models in MLwiN, and to interpret the results.  By the end of the workshop, participants should be capable of producing a publication-quality research paper using multilevel modelling.

Applications should not exceed three pages (including the one-page CV) and must be submitted to info-cmm@bristol.ac.uk by Tuesday 31 May 2011.  Applicants will be notified of the outcome mid-June 2011.
