This very popular course gives a basic understanding of statistical ideas and methods involved in carrying out research. It provides an introduction to R and R Markdown as the basis for reproducible research.

Statistical topics covered will include data visualisation, estimation, hypothesis testing, regression and the general linear model.

The course is run online. Online intensive courses are challenging, so we are scheduling the course over 4 weeks. You can expect to spend an average of 3 hours per day on the course. There will be a mix of pre-recorded lectures, live Q&A (via Zoom) with course presenters and Zoom tutorial sessions. Lecture material is pre-recorded to support flexibility in online learning. Stats package R is free from the web.

Presenters: Ian Gordon and Sue Finch
