Research and Analysis Workflows: Low-Cost, Every-Day Project Management Techniques, Tools, and Tips That Produce High-Quality, Streamlined, Stress-Free Research and Data Science (ADDED FEE) — Professional Development Continuing Education Course
ASA , Section on Statistical Consulting , Survey Research Methods Section
This full-day course assumes you want fewer data collection and analysis mistakes in your work, more efficient and productive meetings, and time and sanity back in your life. This course presents the most useful and generally-applicable tools and techniques culled from the instructors' 30+ combined years of experience in statistics, data science, collaborative biomedical research, consulting, public health, social science, and survey research. It emphasizes simple tools and basic habits that will streamline your research process, whether you are involved in data collection, statistical analysis, or other aspects of the research lifecycle. It focuses on tools that cost little beyond the time and effort it takes to learn and practice them. The first half of the course will include general project and time management techniques. The second half of the course will focus on best practices for your data science pipeline to minimize errors, maximize time to think, and maintain reproducibility. All techniques taught have been tested and adapted by the instructors in their project management work. Students will benefit from the instructors' extensive research and statistical experience. Students will leave with a collection of concrete tools and tips that they can implement immediately.
