Course  »  Why THIS course

Watch this video to get a sense of this course.

The material is presented in a way that makes it sound intuitive – you will understand the logic of meta-analysis.  You will learn to perform a meta-analysis correctly and to report it properly.

One attendee wrote:

As a professor of statistics, I was unsure whether to take the initial online course in meta-analysis, thinking that it might either be too dense and jargon-filled to be interesting (given Dr. Borenstein’s impressive credentials and knowledge base) or too basic (given that I was already teaching a course).

As I finish the series now, however, I am awestruck by the quality of this offering. Dr. Borenstein is quite simply a master teacher, so he offers complex material in a completely comprehensible form, the best of both worlds.

I picked up details on the statistics, the use of CMA, and the theory behind the statistics, but I also (hopefully) will model the style and clarity of his teaching style in my own work in the future. I look forward to the intermediate and advanced sessions.

"The course has enlightened me a lot about meta-analysis. The way I look at a meta-analysis is completely different as this workshop has changed my perspective about meta-analysis completely. It is a kind of an eye opener for me. The course helped me understand the concepts of meta-analysis very clearly."

"The CMA workshop presented by Dr. Michael Borenstein is one of the best we had. Dr. Borenstein delivered the workshop on site to our study team of eight members in Rockville, Maryland. Since most of the participants did not have previous experience with meta-analysis, the one-day workshop covered both conceptual issues related to meta-analysis as well as hands-on demonstration of the CMA software. It was extremely thorough and informative. We were most appreciative of the follow-ups he provided. Dr. Borenstein was always very accessible and helpful whenever we had questions about CMA in the subsequent months as we coded the studies and analyzed the data."
