Research Methods Seminar (designed for research students but open to anyone)
February 11, 2020: Prof Gilad Chen 
Topic: Theorising And Modelling Change Phenomena In Organisational Research

In this seminar designed for research students, I will review and classify different substantive organisational phenomena involving change, such as modelling within-person relationships, capturing and explaining changes over time, and using changes over time as predictors. I will then briefly discuss design consideration and multilevel statistical models that can help studying such phenomena, and show examples of relevant studies from the literature.
