Webcast Lecture Series

The CARMA Webcast Lecture Series was established in 2004 to provide university faculty, graduate students, and other researchers with advanced training in research methods and data analysis. This annual series consists of ten live webcast lectures presented by nationally recognized methodologists. These lectures are developed at an introductory and advanced doctoral student level and will typically include an introduction to the topic as well as a consideration of current technical issues. Emphasis is placed on the application of the research method technique. Prior to each lecture, background readings, references, and PowerPoint slides will be distributed through the CARMA website.
