SEEC holds a number of workshops each year and also runs the SEEC Stats Toolbox Seminars held once every month.

Upcoming workshop - ACCESS SEEC Statistical Modelling (R) course

SEEC is partnering with ACCESS in presenting a short course in statistical data analysis and experimental design using R. The course aims to equip participants with practical experience and skills in analysing data, using some statistical techniques frequently used in the sciences. The skills include designing experiments, choosing appropriate statistical methods for visual display and statistical modelling of data, model checking, interpretation and reporting of statistical results, and understanding limitations of statistical methods and data. The course uses the R statistical package throughout but we do not assume prior knowledge of this package.

The course fee is R3000 (a subsidized cost). The course fee will cover the tuition costs, printing of course material and catering for the event. The costs of travel, transport and accommodation for those needing to travel to attend the event will not be covered.

SEEC Stats Toolbox Seminars

The SEEC Stats Toolbox Seminars introduce a stats method relevant to the fields of ecology, environmental science and conservation and try to make these methods more accessible. These seminars are held once a month, towards the end of the month. Read more about these seminars here.

Past workshops

Past examples of longer workshops have included a workshop on multivariate statistics, machine learning in ecology, Bayesian integrated population modeling (IPM) using BUGS and JAGSspecies distribution modelling using R, and on spatial point process models.
