DATIC, founded in 2003 by David A. Kenny,
offers professional development summer workshops in a variety of modern data analytic techniques. All workshops are geared toward researchers who wish to utilize these techniques in their own work. The maximum enrollment for all DATIC week-long workshops is 24 students, which allows for personal contact with the instructors and a great deal of hands-on learning. Although all workshops are introductory, they do assume familiarity with traditional statistical techniques such as multiple regression, as well as familiarity with a general purpose statistical software package, such as SPSS, SAS, R, Stata, etc.
