Introduction

The aim of this course is to give you an introduction to Bayesian statistics. It is by no means intended to be an exhaustive course, so at the end of it, there will still be a lot for you to learn. However, I do hope that at the end of this workshop you’ll have a better understanding of Bayesian statistics, how it differs from Frequentist approaches, and how to incorporate some Bayesian methods into your research.

The course will cover several topics, including the foundations of Frequentist and Bayesian approaches to statistics, how to calculate Bayes factors, Bayesian estimation, and Bayesian regression modelling.
