Deep dive into research methods: CARMA Short Courses in Detroit

Published April 18, 2017 by Mark Bodnar

I've mentioned our CARMA video library and live webcasts a few times in the past, but I don't think I've talked about their in-person, Short Courses.

Image of the logo for CARMA: Consortium for the Advancement of Research Methods and AnalysisSFU is a member of CARMA (Consortium for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis), which means that our faculty and students get deep discounts on any in-person courses that CARMA arranges... and I see there are couple such sessions coming up in early June at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan:

Session I: June 5th & 6th (full days), June 7th (AM half day)

  • "Introduction to Structural Equation Modeling" - Dr. Larry Williams, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

More information on CARMA and its Short Courses, including course descriptions, instructor biographies, preview videos from the instructors, registration information, residence halls and hotels, can be found here.

If you're interested in attending these sessions, access CARMA via the SFU Library, then login to your personal CARMA account (or create one), then go to the User Area and look for a link to Purchase Short Courses.  

Finally, a reminder that our subscription to CARMA is still just on a trial basis (expiring Aug. 31). If you find the Short Courses, video library, and live webcasts useful, please do send feedback to Nicole White (ngjertse@sfu.ca).
