DPUK Elementary Academy
The DPUK Elementary Academy
Our Elementary Academy is an annual event, taking place this year between 6-10 November 2023. It is a 5-day virtual series of lectures, presentations and guided tutorials, group collaboration and hands-on big data working. It is designed to give researchers an immersive introduction to cohort data analysis techniques.
Designed for students, researchers and professionals who are newcomers or have little experience of analysing health or cohort data, it is equally useful for anyone wanting to refresh their core skills.
The Elementary Academy course provides an introduction to analysis techniques with a particular focus on dementia. Although it is applicable in other areas of health research, during the course you will be working on datasets from our DPUK Data Portal.
Our expert line-up of presenters, lecturers and tutorial leaders explore topics including:
- multi-modal analysis
- multi-cohort projects
- data standardisation
- and linear models.
DPUK's Elementary Academy complements the Advanced Academy, which is aimed at more experienced analysts. and our highly successful Datathon series, which gives researchers the chance to work in multidisciplinary groups on real research projects in the DPUK Data Portal.
Each day at the Academy involves a morning including a contextual presentation and a statistical lecture. There is a guided analysis tutorial in the afternoon.
The fee for the course is £125. We only ask for payment once your application has been accepted.
