5-6th and 12th July 2021.
10am EST — 2pm EST (check your local time here)
Our workshop introduces the logic of Bayesian inference and contrast it to null-hypothesis-significance-testing. After providing a brief conceptual introduction, the course will walk through a Bayesian statistical analysis using R and the package brms (Bürkner 2017).
We will explain how to set up a Bayesian regression model (including setting appropriate priors), how to test 'hypotheses' (including parameter estimation and Bayes factor), how to interpret the results, how to diagnose model convergence, and how to visualize and report the results. In hands-on exercises, the participants will immediately apply their knowledge to new data sets in R.
This workshop is sponsored by the Association for Laboratory Phonology, and is free for members of the ALP. If you would like to participate in this workshop and are not currently an ALP member, please become a member now. Remember to also register for the workshop!
