An introduction to Bayesian statistics


This is a 2-hour workshop for the Graduate School of Medical Sciences at the UMCG, Groningen. It takes place online (and perhaps also in-location; tba) from 15:00 on October 29, 2020. I aim at offering a gentle introduction to Bayesian statistics. During the first half, the most important concepts are introduced. In the second hour, I will illustrate the richness of Bayesian analyses by means of a worked-out empirical application. I will be as visual as possible, so the idea is to keep the technicalities to a minimum. The code is freely available from Github. All analyses are fully reproducible. I used R (with RStudio as the graphical user interface).
