MMMIGS Workshop: Statistik für Human-Computer Interaction

Am 30.06.2021 von 14:00-18:00 und am 02.07.2021 von 13:00-17:00 veranstaltet die Minds, Media Machines Integrated Graduate School (MMMIGS) einen englischsprachigen Online-Workshop über Statistik für Human-Computer Interaction für die Promovierenden des Wissenschaftsschwerpunkts Minds, Media, Machines. Der Workshop findet auf Englisch statt, eine detaillierte Beschreibung der Inhalte findet sich weiter unten. Die Teilnahme an beiden Terminen wird empfohlen, es ist jedoch auch die Teilnahme an nur einem der Termine möglich.

Wenn Sie Interesse an der Teilnahme haben, senden Sie bitte eine E-Mail mit Ihrem Namen, Ihrem Forschungsbereich/angestrebtem Abschluss (z.B. Informatik/Promotion) und Ihrem Wissensstand in Statistik an mmmigs@uni-bremen.de.


Workshop description:

The workshop entails two sessions, each of four hours or 360 minutes. The workshop is split into two sessions to allow for reflection and deeper processing. The two sessions will be offered in close sequence to maximize retention and progress. The workshop sessions will be tailored as good as possible to the level of the participants and ample opportunities to ask questions will be provided.
The two workshop sessions can be visited separately. However, we would advise most people to visit both sessions to enable a deeper familiarization with the scientific and data driven mindset underlying the workshop.

During the first session research methodology, data preparation and possibilities for visualization will be discussed and demonstrated. The quality of the planned research method has direct influence on the quality of the data that will be gathered according to it. Therefore, we will start with practical research methodology, enlarging upon the theoretical meaning and practical usefulness of such concepts as pre-registration, anchoring effect, double-blind setup and manipulation check. Vivid examples from real and fictitious research will be used to further the understanding of these concepts. In the following, aids to structure the data processing via R and Python will be specified and enriched with examples from own experiences. We will illustrate major challenges of a structured data preparation approach and – especially – their solutions. The end of the first session includes handy guidelines and examples for visualizing data in R (ggplot2) and Python (pandas).

The second session will focus on analytics. Every analysis combines certain assumptions about the data. The workshop will specifically illustrate the assumptions of ANOVA, ANCOVA, (hierarchical) regression and time series analyses and their possible assumption checks. For a set of failures of certain assumptions, possibly redeeming actions are discussed and exemplified (deviation from normality, heteroscedasticity, deviation from linearity, bottom-/ceiling effects). Each analysis procedure comprises a respective set of post-hoc analyses, which are permittable and best practice, but are – unlike assumption checks – more selectively employed. As in the first session, real and fictious examples with R and Python will enhance the active character of the workshop.
