Online Workshop "Rethinking statistics: Bayesian approach"

The aim of this course is to provide participants with a basic understanding of Bayes Rule and of the reasoning behind the Bayesian approach to statistics. For this, we will need to review a few important concepts, including variables, distributions, probability, and parameters of statistical models. I will present examples of analyses performed in the Bayesian context. This workshop is an introduction to the Bayesian approach. Participants will not learn to perform Bayesian analyses on their own.
