Instruction & Training 1312

This one-day workshop taught by Devin Cornell, will cover the practical and theoretical foundations of Social Network Analysis methodologies. The workshop will begin with some fundamental concepts and a basic history of the methodology up to current active areas of research. Next, we will review both traditional network data collection through surveys and modern tools for collecting digital social media data, and start working hands-on with pre-collected data of both types. We will cover how to use Gephi for visualization and basic analysis, then do more advanced statistical analyses in R. Finally, the workshop will end with an overview of different tools that can be used for network analysis, and how you might apply them to your own research.
