*Interactive introductory distance sampling training*
The University of St Andrews has been training people in design and
analysis of distance sampling studies for decades. Perhaps you've
wanted to attend but could not get permission for travel to Scotland or
the scheduling of workshops in August conflicted with your field work.
We are offering the training workshop in 10 two-hour blocks in early
January. You will be invited to interact in short lectures on distance
sampling principles. 👩🎓 Exercises analysing data sets in R will
reinforce those principles and the lecturer will be available to assist
during the practical session via screen sharing. The block will
conclude with a summary of the exercise and question/answer session for
both lecture and exercise. 💻
The workshop will be delivered using Zoom web conferencing software
along with R-Studio "in the cloud"☁️; both free software tools. You
will need accounts for both pieces of software. I encourage you to
experiment with Zoom (at https://zoom.us) and https://rstudio.cloud
before the course begins.
/Registration for the first offering of this training filled within a
week of advertisement. Persons on the wait list for the first offering
have already filled half of the available places./ I suggest you
register and pay without delay.

At this page you will find a link to the St Andrews online shop where
you a) register and b) make payment.
Feel free to contact me with questions. We expect to offer this
training again in spring 2020 if January timing does not suit you.
Future offerings may use the Distance for Windows software if there is
sufficient demand. The interactive workshops do not replace
face-to-face distance sampling workshops that will be held in August 2020.
