Event Details

In this 3-hour workshop, Dr Gilad Feldman will introduce practical procedures, methods, and hands-on tools to conduct high-quality meta-analysis incorporating some of the latest advancements in psychological science and open-science (e.g., meta-analysis pre-registrations, advanced bias estimates with p/z-curves, etc.).

He will demonstrate both experimental and correlational metas and share a bit about some of the meta-analysis projects his students and he completed last year that these can be done well by undergraduates and masters students. He'll be demonstrating meta tools such as Shiny webapps (MAVIS), JAMOVI click-n-run software with the wonderful MAJOR extension, R Markdown code for automated meta-analysis outputs, and METABUS.

Please do bring your laptops, and to save time, try the following before the workshop:

* R proficiency is NOT a must for this workshop, it's also not a workshop about R. You do not need to know R to gain from this workshop, but he will demonstrate some R tools that will hopefully get you to consider transitioning to R.
