ONLINE COURSE – Introduction to Bayesian hierarchical modelling using R
(IBHM04) This course will be delivered live

This course will be delivered via video link from the 21st-24th April

In light of travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak
this course will now be delivered live by video link.

This is a ‘LIVE COURSE’ – the instructor will be delivering lectures and
coaching attendees through the accompanying computer practical’s via video
link, a good internet connection is essential.

Course Overview:
This course will cover introductory hierarchical modelling for real-world
data sets from a Bayesian perspective. These methods lie at the forefront
of statistics research and are a vital tool in the scientist’s toolbox,
especially
in the analysis of complex data sets such as those encountered in the study
of marine mammals where the collection of multiple and auto-correlating
environmental variables is unavoidable. The course focuses on introducing
concepts and demonstrating good practice in hierarchical models.

All methods are demonstrated with data sets which
participants can run themselves. Participants will be taught how to fit
hierarchical models using the Bayesian modelling software Jags and Stan
through the R software interface. The course covers the full gamut from
simple regression models through to full generalised multivariate
hierarchical structures. A Bayesian approach is taken throughout, meaning
that participants can include all available information in their models and
estimates all unknown quantities with uncertainty. Participants are
encouraged to bring their own data sets for discussion with the course
tutors.
