Details

Course Outline

Bayesian analysis is an alternative approach to the statistical techniques that are commonly used throughout most of the research world for the analysis of data. It's core principle stems for the idea that experiments are not abstract devices, hence knowledge existent prior to an experiment should be incorporated formally and openly in the analysis. 

This course is aimed at professionals who want to be able to understand the fundamental principles of the Bayesian analysis in order to assist their own research as well as interpret other people's findings. By the end of this workshop, delegates should be able to understand and critically evaluate published research that has used Bayesian analysis as well as be confident to implement Bayesian concepts in their own research.

It is desirable for the course participants to have basic knowledge of statistics, i.e. notion of statistical inference, p-values and Confidence intervals.

Feedback

"Very well designed and conducted courses. Very interesting and clear. I definitely recommend."
"I decided go to London from Sao Paulo/Brazil to visit the city and to take this course. The result was that I'm happy with this great introduction of Bayesian Analysis and I'll recommend this course to all my colleagues in Brazil."
"Always taught well, I like the professors friendly manner and that she doesn't talk down to you and understands that we want to know the concepts not the maths."
"I think the course was great and the prof was very good."
"The speaker came off as incredibly knowledgeable about the topic and gave succinct and clear answers to the questions being asked. The materials were also nicely organised, and the format of the notes will (I believe) make it easy to return to the material at a later point in time. This was my first of these stats courses, and I would definitely attend another."
 "The presenter was excellent and explained everything very clearly."
