With moderate success (I think), we just finished running a Stata boot camp for our masters students, who are switching from using SPSS point-and-click to Stata this semester. The materials for running this boot camp are now on the Resources page.
Many thanks to Dominique Baker, Sy Doan, Adam Kho, Chris Marsicano, Olivia Murray, Chris Redding, Luis Rodriguez, and Ben Skinner for piloting and providing feedback on the materials and modules.
I think I’m going to start putting some of my thoughts on interesting research articles down on paper (keyboard?) every now and then. But I figured that if I’m going to do that, I should mark down some disclaimers about these.
First, my purpose in writing these thoughts is not to provide a comprehensive review of the articles, and I will often not be discussing some of the parts of the article. So to that end, no one should ever use what I write as a substitute for actually reading the original publications.
Second, I will attempt as best as possible to write any criticisms I have as open to discussion. I’m fallible, like anyone else, and it’s possible that I’m missing an important piece in my interpretation of an article. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
That’s all I can think of for now. I’ll likely add more as I explore this endeavor.
WordPress’ default post title seems apt. More informative content coming soon.
