This course is for anyone working with data who wants to further their understanding of Bayesian analysis (in the context of biological systems). With Dr. Joe Thorley’s guidance and support, students will spend four months immersing themselves in Bayesian modelling in this weekly two-hour interactive session by reviewing one chapter of Statistical Rethinking (2nd Edition) by McElreath (2020), and watching McElreath’s accompanying online lectures (an average of 1 hour each).
