Applications Are Open for the 2020 Meta-Analysis Training Institute

Georgia State University, with a grant from the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) National Center for Education Research (NCER), is accepting applications for the upcoming Meta-Analysis Training Institute, a state-of-the-art session on advanced meta-analytic methods.

The application deadline is Wednesday, April 1, 2020.

Workshop details and application submission materials are available on the Meta-Analysis Training Institute webpage.

The Meta-Analysis Training Institute will be offered July 26 – August 1, 2020 in Chicago, Illinois.

The training has two primary goals:

  • Provide researchers with the methodological, statistical, project management, and practical experience necessary to conduct meta-analyses focused on important education topics.
  • Increase the number and quality of studies that use meta-analysis, particularly the number of IES grant applications featuring meta-analysis.

The workshop includes five days of training and one day of group presentations. Each day will include three sessions and time to work on a group project. The integrative project will provide participants with an opportunity to practice developing an IES meta-analysis research proposal.
