= Sample Size Calculation with GPower =
Introduction of the necessary concepts (power, effect size and type I/II errors), with small exercises to promote statistical reasoning. After a focus on the comparison of 2 independent groups, several extensions are highlighted. [webpage]
= Methodological & Statistical issues in research proposals =
Info session for experienced researchers to help highlight relevant aspects of the research aim and design that are part of a research proposal. [webpage] [pdf]
= Corona hospitalisation SIR model =
Technical note on the analytical approximation of the popular SIR-equations which after reparametrization allow for straightforward parameter estimation and prediction of hospitalisation sustainability based on limited time series. Extensions that add flexibility are highlighted. [pdf]
