Instagram & R: Intro to Linear Regression Models Seminar

Instagram & R: Intro to Linear Regression Models Seminar

Wednesday, April 10 and 17, 2019, 16:00-17:00 in Room 3.16 (This has changed)

This two-session workshop applies the principles, methods, and interpretation of regression models to general applications, including Instagram. The scope of the workshop runs from basic principles of linear regression to deciphering the output of statistical analyses. We will cover the practical aspects of running multiple linear regression models in the R/RStudio environment.

At the end of the sessions, participants will be able to:

understand the principles of linear regression and modelling strategies
report and present the output from such analyses
have experience in applying multiple linear regression in RStudio


Students are expected to have a basic familiarity with the concepts of descriptive statistics and elementary statistical hypothesis testing. Exercises will be based on RStudio.  Thus, some prior experience with this language would be an advantage.

Students are encouraged to bring their own laptop with RStudio installed or access to Webster’s web-based RStudio. The R-script required to complete the exercises will be provided.

Who should attend?

Students who are interested in and/or considering using linear regression in their research. The sessions would suit students currently involved in, or about to start, project, thesis, and other researchers who wish to expand their quantitative research skills.
