Education at the Behavioral Informatics team

The Behavioral Informatics team at HIC, LIME, strives to find ways in which behavioral data can be used to optimize health interventions.

We are involved in teaching psychometrics and measurement construction within the Psychology Program and the Doctoral School of Research Methodology in Family Medicine, as well as in teaching a doctoral course on Construction and Validation of Measurement in Behavioral Sciences (4.5 credits). The course covers those aspects of classical test theory and modern latent variables theory that are necessary for doctoral students to successfully use a measurement instrument in their research projects. Next time the course will be offered in fall semester 2022.

We are also open for individual consultations regarding issues related to behavioral measurement, including for example survey and questionnaire construction, validation of measurement instruments, and modelling of multilevel behavioral data. Please contact Aleksandra Sjöström-Bujacz for more information.

Practical Introduction to Multilevel Data Analysis: From Data Collection to Results Interpretation

Even thoughthe application is closed you may still apply by sending an email to Aleksandra Sjöström-Bujacz.

The purpose of this course is to give doctoral students a possibility to acquire practical understanding and hands-on statistical skills required to use multilevel analysis in their research projects. The course also aims at inspiring the students to apply novel data collection designs in their research (e.g., hierarchical and cross-classified data, clustered randomized trials, collecting data with diary and experience sampling designs, using data from tracking and mobile devices).
