Retreat Description:

Todd D. Little, Ph.D. developed Stats Camps Analysis Retreats to address the need for specialized expertise that is often needed to move complex research projects to approval and publication. Dr. Little is a preeminent award-earning scholar who has published over 300 peer-reviewed works that have garnered 46,611+ citations.

Who Should Attend?

If you are in the pre-data analysis phase, Stats Camp staff will engage with you to develop a testable research hypothesis, a fully articulated analysis plan, and ensure full understanding of the analysis model, the nature of its results, and their implications.

If you are in the analysis phase, Stats Camp staff will work with you to learn the software syntax needed to analyze your data, interpret the output and understand the implications of your findings.

Breakout sessions will cover a vast array of techniques and topics. Some topics are predetermined while others will be prepared specifically to meet your needs and the needs of the other participants (a survey will be given prior to the event to develop this need list of topics to cover).

What to expect:

Participants in our past annual Stats Camp Analysis Retreats were overwhelming positive about the individualized learning that took place as well as the opportunity to work with their own data – a practical aspect that makes learning easier. Because participants are enabled to ask questions and get immediate feedback, learning the practical analytic skills is facilitated. Also, participants learned about different topics tailored to their learning needs.

Participants uniformly exclaimed that the learning activities and interaction with the Stats Camp instructors contributed to publishing more articles and increased the quality of their research, which has allowed them to target higher impact factor journals. Because quantitative methods are a critical gap in most fields, the Stats Camp experience helped clarify the essential importance of quantitative methods. By learning the basics of applying these methods, the knowledge is thereby carried over to other colleagues and students, and ultimately helping to close the gap.

The Stats Camp Analysis Retreat is a perfect combination of learning and fun from the comfort of a beautiful lodge in an amazing destination, networking in a collegial and social context. Having the stats camp in a retreat format, gives you ample time, motivation, and access to incomparable expertise to propel your research forward.
