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 2022-2023 academic year will be held virtually via Zoom until further notice. 

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, the meeting schedule is TBD, a hybrid meeting will be offered with a virtual option. 

Workshop Instructor for the pre-workshop session, 2022-2023: Yanyan Sheng yysheng@uchicago.edu
