As the amount of research studies is growing exponentially, meta-analytic techniques play a crucial role as they enable to:
- Quantitatively synthesize results across studies to make general conclusions;
- Reduce sampling error;
- Contribute to evidence-based decisions in practice, policy and research.
- Provide detailed information (e.g., what works, when, where, for who and at which cost).
A 2-day meta-analysis workshop is organized to provide hands-on exposure to the process involved in conducting a meta-analysis from the planning stage, through the selection of appropriate statistical techniques, through the issues involved in analyzing data, to the interpretation of results. Examples and case studies from the social sciences will be integrated into the discussions and lectures. Day 1 and day 2 of the workshop are designed independently, which allows participants to sign up for one or multiple days depending on their interest and level of experience.
