08:00-11:00 Session 1A: Workshop 1: Data Visualization in Discourse Processes

Data visualization is the graphical display of quantities, qualities, and relationships. As a discipline, it draws heavily from other areas: quantitative methods, the social sciences, computer science, and art and design. This workshop introduces a process for quickly creating effective graphs, with an emphasis on visualizations that support exploratory analysis. It covers various grammars of graphics and software options for rapid generation of both static and interactive graphs. The format is a hands-on lab where you will be creating visualizations using data publicly available in Discourse Processes. Required: a laptop with any operating system (no special software is required; we will be using cloud-based software) and a Google account; the Google Chrome browser is recommended.

Chair:
08:00-11:00 Session 1B: Workshop 2: How Bayesian Statistics Tell Us What We Want to Know

To say that our dominant statistical paradigm, “Null Hypothesis Significance Testing” (NHST), is confusing is an understatement. It has been shown that it often befuddles even experts. In this workshop, I will explain the underlying logic of NHST, and why it is so confusing. I will then introduce an alternative approach, the Bayesian framework, which is more consistent, easier to interpret, and above all, answers the questions that empirical scientists (even those who use NHST) really *want* to ask.
