Part 2: Practical Skills for Managing Performance, Conduct and Conflict at Work (Practical workshop) Mar 14, 2019 from 02:30 PM to 04:30 PM
This two part course is aimed at any member of staff who has team management responsibility (unless it has been identified and agreed as part of PDD development that it would be beneficial for you to attend this course). The course gives an overview of the University’s Ordinances, Policies and Procedures and your role and responsibilities and those of HR, as well as providing an opportunity for you to explore and practice practical approaches and techniques when managing conduct, conflict and performance issues that may arise with your staff. The course will look at both informal options for resolving issues, as well as the need to escalate to formal processes using relevant University Ordinances. Delegates are required to complete Part 1 on Blackboard, before attending Part 2, a practical workshop which will give you the opportunity to develop and practice key skills in a supportive learning environment. Part 2 of the course (the practical workshop) is available in two versions, one aimed at Academic and Research staff, the other aimed at Professional services and Corporate services staff. We invite you to attend the course version that you believe most accurately describes the type of work you and your team are involved in.

Linear Regression Model using R Mar 13, 2019 from 01:00 PM to 05:00 PM
This session will extend the basic statistical concepts of hypothesis testing to more complex modelling scenarios encountered in many datasets. It will begin with an introduction of a simple linear regression model and the statistical theory underpinning such a model. It will then move to more complex modelling scenarios including multiple regression, polynomial regression and non-linear regression. The session will explain the strategies of data analyses, interpretation of model outcomes and practical issues relevant to such models. It aims to combine both the theoretical background of statistical principles and its implementation in the R software environment so that attendees understand both the concepts and its applications.
