    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 
November.  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 no-cost 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.

      Important details:

  * Workshop dates and time: 04 - 15 November 2019
      o 1800-2000 UK time (1300-1500 EST, 1000-1200 PST, 0900-1100AKST) 🕰️
  * Registration deadline: *28 October 2019*📅
  * Enrolment limit: 10 (so everybody can get attention they desire)
  * Cost: 170 British pounds (roughly $205 at current exchange rates)💵
  * What is included: Lectures, exercises, code, data all available online📃

Further details are available at the CREEM website:


At this page you will find a link to the St Andrews online shop where 
you register and make payment.

Feel free to contact me with questions.  We expect to offer this 
training again in early 2020 if November 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.
