Heart and Pulse of UKOER

Description

'The Heart' image is a visualisation of how the #ukoer Twitter community is connected (friend relationships) based on users whose tweet included the #ukoer tag from April 2009 to the beginning of January 2012. The results are graphed in Gephi, node size reflecting the bridging capacity of that person within the network (betweenness centrality), and grouped using a community detection algorithm (modularity class). Profile descriptions for each of the groupings is used to generate a word cloud. 'The Pulse' image is a graph of the Twitter collected from the same sample period showing connections for @replies, @mentions and retweets. More information on how this images were made is at http://mashe.hawksey.info/2012/02/oer-visualisation-project-the-heart-and-pulse-of-ukoer-day-40/

Logistic Regression

Description

These presentations cover both binary and multinomial logistic regression and use examples from the Social Capital Teaching Dataset (ESDS). The first presentation discusses the theory behind logistic regression, why it is so important to the social sciences and how to select and specify variables for a model. The second presentation covers how to run and interpret a binary logistic regression model in SPSS. The third presentation covers how to run and interpret a multinomial logistic regression model in SPSS. Each presentation can be covered in 50 mins if the class is confident with the material. All three presentations should be supported with a following computer workshop.

Cross-Sectional and Longitudinal Designs

Description

This presentation looks in-depth at cross-sectional and longitudinal designs. It also looks at the problem of establishing causality (rather than correlation) in social science and uses a video from GapMinder to show the power of temporal data. It uses major social science surveys to demonstrate the types of topics and questions that can be addressed by the different research designs. The activity at the end of the presentation is suitable for a seminar group - it's harder than it sounds!
