CARMA short courses bring 300 researchers to campus

The Center for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) is hosting its spring short courses series. The center has more than 300 participants from 70 universities across the United States registered for the 15 courses being offered this month on Wayne State University’s main campus.

Running from June 2-7, the short courses series is geared toward faculty, graduate students and other practitioners in the organizational studies and management areas. Instructors are leading methodological scholars within these fields.

Each course focuses on a single research method or data analysis topic and places an emphasis on hands-on experience and the application of the methodology aimed at skill development through lecture and lab time. The sessions also provide students and faculty with the opportunity to network with other scholars and practitioners in their areas of interest.

Larry Williams, CARMA director and professor of management at WSU, is pleased with the record turnout for the weeklong course. In addition to managing most of the details of the entire series, Williams is teaching the "Introduction to Structural Equation Methods" and "Intermediate SEM: Model Evaluation" courses.
