This module will cover:
This course is divided into 10 units. Each unit covers a different aspect of statistics and statistical modelling.
Individual units are built around practical exercises and realistic case studies that will enable students to apply statistical knowledge in a health context.
Weekly study for each unit is self-paced using online resources. Movement through the units is structured week by week to enable students to complete sections at the same time as the rest of their course group.
Individual activities can involve reading of related text book chapters and articles, working through problems or analysing example datasets. The group activities will mainly involve online discussions of important issues in statistics so that students can put the application of statistics into an everyday context. Discussions occur weekly, but are "asynchronous" due to possible local time differences between the student's locations.
