Workshops

The Workshop on Quantitative Research Methods in Education, Health, and Social Sciences (QMEHSS) serves as an important venue on the University of Chicago campus for building an intellectual community of colleagues who share methodological interests. Workshop participants meet biweekly to discuss working papers and brainstorm solutions to methodological problems encountered in ongoing research. Participants have included faculty members, researchers, and students from the Social Sciences Division, Health Studies, Statistics, Public Policy, the National Opinion Research Center, the Consortium for Chicago School Research, and colleagues from the University of Illinois in Chicago. In addition, we have invited speakers from other major universities to share with us their latest work. 

Due to covid restrictions, all workshops for the 2020-2021 academic year will be held virtually via Zoom until further notice. 

Workshop Instructor for the pre-workshop session, 2020-2021: Yanyan Sheng yysheng@uchicago.edu

The pre-workshop session is designed to prepare students for active participation in intellectual discourse in the workshop. The pre-workshop sessions will be held bi-weekly and are TBD.
