Edwards will open the Thursday, Sept. 14 event at 11 a.m. in the Nebraska Union with a keynote presentation titled "Does model fit have a validity problem?" He will discuss issues with validation work on model fit measures.
Part 1 of Edward's statistics workshop, "Where Does Philosophy Fit in Statistics," begins later that afternoon from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Nebraska Union, Heritage Room. Edwards will discuss how statistics is taught, ranging from introductions to advanced methods—and if, where, and how philosophy and statistics should intersect.
Part 2 of Edwards' statistics workshop continues Friday, Sept. 15 from 8 to 10 a.m. in the Nebraska Union, Georgian Suite. Titled "Why Won't People Just Give Me What I Want? A Primer On Negotiation," Edwards will discuss general ideas behind good negotiating as well as exploring specific examples in a wide range of industry and academic settings.
All events are free and open to the public. The statistics workshop requires registration, which is available at: http://mapacademy.unl.edu/training/2017/mike-edwards/registration
