CULP: French Basic for Academic Purposes (LAP) (13 of 15) In progress 13:30 - 15:00 Language Centre, Teaching Room 3

Using close reading and translation of academic texts from their particular discipline, this weekly class is intended to help research students in the Arts and Humanities to develop their skills in reading French documents that they have come across or may meet in their research.

The course aims to develop strategies for reading longer texts faster through close analysis, grammatical and stylistic commentary, and translation. For example, literary texts with differing editions, stories with two or more translations into English that need to be compared and evaluated, poems of challenging originality or range of allusion.

Classes will be conducted in English, but there will be many opportunities to use French and practise reading aloud.

Public Policy Analysis (3 of 3) In progress 14:00 - 16:00 Department of Genetics, Biffen Lecture Theatre

The analysis of policy depends on many disciplines and techniques and so is difficult for many researchers to access. This module provides a mixed perspective on policy analysis, taking both an academic and a practitioner perspective. This is because the same tools and techniques can be used in academic research on policy options and change as those used in practice in a policy environment. This course is provided as three 2 hour sessions delivered as a mix of lectures and seminars. No direct analysis work will be done in the sessions themselves, but sample data and questions will be provided for students who wish to take the material into practice.

Session 1
How do we analyse policy development and change over time? The policy cycle and models of policy change In studying how policies are developed and chosen there are two different timescales to consider- the immediate process of policy development (the policy cycle) and the evolution of a policy over long periods of time (models of policy change). This session will outline both timescales and discuss how these models can be applied to study policy change, highlighting the contested nature of most models of policy.

Session 2
What tools do we use to analyse policy options I – CBA and MCDA in policy analysis Policy analysis is a distinct practice that is forward looking, taking an issue and trying to both develop options and to provide a decision framework for making a policy choice. This first of two sessions provides a brief overview of cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) and gives examples of their use in policy decision making.

Session 3
What tools do we use to analyse policy options II – using regressions in policy analysis Much of the information that policymakers need is provided through the outputs of regression analysis of varying complexity. This session will review the output of ordinary least squares and logistic regressions and use examples of their use in policy to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of using regression analysis in different policy analysis contexts.

Unix: Building, Installing and Running Software (1 of 3) [Places] 14:00 - 17:00 University Information Services, Roger Needham Building, Ely Training Room 2

This course is part of the Scientific Computing series.

It is common for a student or researcher to find a piece of software or to have one thrust upon them by a supervisor which they must then build, install and use. It is a myth that any of this requires system privilege. This course demonstrates the building, installation and use of typical software ranging from trivially easy examples (the "configure, make, install" scheme) through to the evils of badly written Makefiles. Common errors and what they mean will be covered and by the end of the course the student should be able to manage their own software without needing to pester their system administrator.

CULP: German Intermediate 1 for Academic Purposes (LAP) (13 of 15) In progress 14:00 - 15:30 Language Centre, Teaching Room 2

This weekly class is intended to help research students in the Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences to develop their skills in reading German documents they need to deal with in their research. Each session will be divided into two parts:

The first part will consist of grammar, tasks to develop insight into the reading process, help with dealing with complex sentence structures, academic conventions, abbreviations, etc.

The second part will be devoted to the translation of original German texts from different periods and covering a range of topics. Each week you will be asked to attempt a translation into English of a German passage. Students will be encouraged to bring along German texts from their own research to translate.

Introduction to Research Integrity at Cambridge new [Places] 14:00 - 16:00 17 Mill Lane, Seminar Room E


This course will be delivered by the University’s Research Governance and Integrity Officer and will introduce researchers to research integrity and ethics at Cambridge. The course will:

  • explore the issue of research misconduct in academia and facilitate discussion of why and how it occurs
  • explain the recent research integrity agenda and examine how this effects researchers
  • discuss some of the challenges to the integrity of research and ask what individuals, groups and institutions can do to tackle them
  • introduce the University’s research ethics system
  • use case studies and discussion exercises to examine key issues
Statistics for Biologists in R new (1 of 8) [Full] 14:00 - 17:00 8 Mill Lane, Lecture Room 6

This laptop only course is intended to provide a strong foundation in practical statistics and data analysis using the R software environment. The underlying philosophy of the course is to treat statistics as a practical skill rather than as a theoretical subject and as such the course focuses on methods for addressing real-life issues in the biological sciences.

There are three core goals for this course:

  1. Use R confidently for statistics and data analysis
  2. Be able to analyse datasets using standard statistical techniques
  3. Know which tests are and are not appropriate

R is a free, software environment for statistical and data analysis, with many useful features that promote and facilitate reproducible research.

In this course, we introduce the R language, and cover basic data manipulation and plotting. We then move on to explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to generalised linear model analysis. The focus of the course is on practical implementation of these techniques and developing robust statistical analysis skills rather than on the underlying statistical theory

After the course you should feel confident to be able to select and implement common statistical techniques using R and moreover know when, and when not, to apply these techniques.

Meta Analysis (3 of 4) In progress 16:00 - 18:00 University Information Services, Titan Teaching Room 1, New Museums Site

In this module students will be introduced to meta-analysis, a powerful statistical technique allowing researchers to synthesize the available evidence for a given research question using standardized (comparable) effect sizes across studies. The sessions teach students how to compute treatment effects, how to compute effect sizes based on correlational studies, how to address questions such as what is the association of bullying victimization with depression? The module will be useful for students who seek to draw statistical conclusions in a standardized manner from literature reviews they are conducting.

Aims:
1. To understand and judge the results produced by a meta-analysis
2. To learn how to compute effects sizes based on dichotomous and continuous data
3. To become familiar with heterogeneity tests
4. To learn how to calculate and report subgroup analysis and meta-regression

Session 1: Computational formulas for effect sizes and their variance: fixed/random models
Session 2: Heterogeneity in effect sizes: Tau-squared, Tau, and I-squared
Session 3: Sub-group analysis and meta-regression
Session 4: Vote-counting; publication bias; criticism of meta-analysis

Survey Research and Design (4 of 4) In progress 16:00 - 18:00 8 Mill Lane, Lecture Room 1

The module aims to provide students with an introduction to and overview of survey methods and its uses and limitations. It will introduce students both to some of the main theoretical issues involved in survey research (such as survey sampling, non-response and question wording) and to practicalities of the design and analysis of surveys. The module consists of four two-hour sessions, each of which has two parts.

The first hour of each session will consist of a lecture. The four lectures cover: the background to and history of survey research (with examples mostly drawn from political polling); an overview of the issues involved in analysing data from surveys conducted by others and some practical advice on how to evaluate such data; issues of sampling, non-response and different ways of doing surveys; issues related to questionnaire design (question wording, answer options, etc.) and ethical considerations. These lectures are relevant for all students taking the module, irrespective of whether they will conduct surveys themselves or are 'passive' users of survey results. Students who have attended these lectures will be able to evaluate research that uses surveys, in particular to understand issues concerning sample selection, response bias and data analysis; to appreciate and understand basic principles of questionnaire design; and to trace appropriate sources of data and appropriate exemplars of good survey practice.

The second hour of each session will focus more on the practical aspects of designing surveys and will feature some practical exercises. The focus will primarily be on issues directly related to questionnaires (and less on issues of sampling), such as the wording of questions, the order of questions, and the use of different answer options. Most of the exercises will be provided by the instructors (and we may provide opportunities to field successful exercises as part of YouGov surveys), but there will also be opportunities for students to bring in examples of surveys they would like to develop for their own research (and participants in the sessions may be asked to answer each other's surveys as a pilot test). We encourage all students registered for the module to attend these second parts of the sessions, but it will be of most direct relevant to who are using, or plan to use, surveys in their research. (It should also be noted that all students attending the second hour of the sessions are expected to participate and engage with the exercises.)

This one hour lecture, given by Philip Guildford, Director of Research, will provide you with the basics of what you need to know about intellectual property (copyright, patents, confidentiality agreements) in the context of University Research. A useful starting point, which could prevent you making costly mistakes in the future.
