How to find us

You won't be able to access the room one your own, so we'll be waiting for you at the library entrance! The library is in the city centre, right next to the municipality building.

Want to make sure that you can draw conclusions from your results? Or instill more trust in your research findings? Or make sure that any results you generate are reproducible? If so, come along and learn how to do power analysis in R! Power analysis is vital in today's age, where we aren't always sure if we can trust any finding from any data. With enough power, we know that we have the ability to detect certain effects if they are there, giving more trust to the research process. And, even better, with enough power other can also replicate your work!

We'll have more detailed information soon about the content of the session.

18:30-18:45. Introduction to power and reproducibility. Laurel Brehm & Eirini Zormpa
18:45-19:15. Code walkthrough: Power calculations based on earlier research. Marianne de Heer Kloots
19:15-20:30. Live coding: Writing power calculation functions and simulating data. Laurel Brehm

Don't forget to bring your (fully charged!) laptop with R Studio installed.
You'll also need to install some packages - you can simply do that on the spot, or if you like you can also set it up in advance (we'll let you know soon what they will be!).
