Support VAR analyses Elske Bos

Elske Bos will coach two researchers from the ICPE to get familiar with VAR-analyses in the end of December 2014 and beginning of January 2015. If you are interested to join, you can contact Elske Bos (elske.bos@umcg.nl). Note that you can only attend if you have followed the online ARIMA and VAR course. This online course takes about half a day to complete.

 

Update Workgroup automatic feedback

The automatic feedback workgroup takes place every two weeks on Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Researchers from different research projects take part and it is a good way to learn from each other and discuss each other’s work. Till now we discussed the feedback reports used in Nesda and ‘How Nuts are the Dutch’, and developmental environments available to program automatic feedback reports. Summaries of the meetings are available online. In January 2015, concept reports of ‘No Fun No Glory’ (6 January 2015) and the Grip-project (20 January 2015) will be discussed.

 

External website

We received help from Heleen Dijkhuis (communication UMCG) to update the external iLab website. Using her very helpful suggestions the updated website will be online soon. If you have further suggestions for improvement, feel free to contact us.
