I am frequently asked to give seminars or short courses on my areas of expertise.
The following established courses have all been given before and enthusiastically received.
Any of these courses can be adapted to fit the organisers' requirements, and
I am also willing to consider requests for new courses.
- Introduction to Bayesian Statistics.
This three-day course provides a thorough grounding in the concepts and theory of Bayesian
statistics. It is intended for people who already have some formal training in the theory of
traditional frequentist statistics and who wish to learn the Bayesian approach.
- Introduction to Elicitation.
This one-day course presents the basic theory and methods for eliciting expert knowledge in
probabilistic form. It is intended particularly for people who wish to learn how to perform
the role of facilitator in eliciting expert knowledge, but it is also appropriate for those
who simply wish to see how expert knowledge can be elicited accurately and reliably using
the best current practices in the field. Synopsis
- Expert Knowledge Elicitation with SHELF.
This three-day course provides a complete training for eliciting expert knowledge in
probabilistic form using the SHELF system. In addition to the
basic ideas presented in the one-day course above, this course goes into detail on how to
set up and facilitate an elicitation workshop, with extensive practical advice.
It also provides hands-on experience through exercises and role-play. Synopsis
- Uncertainty in Mechanistic Models / Uncertainty Quantification.
Uncertainty in Mechanistic Models is a one-day course that I developed and refined with the help of colleagues
in the MUCM (Managing Uncertainty in Complex Models) project. It deals with the basic methods of
building and using an emulator for characterising uncertainties in the outputs of models of
real-world processes. (This area has more recently become known as Uncertainty Quantification, and I can also
offer courses building on more recent work.) Synopsis
- Bayesian Methods in Health Economics.
This course of five lectures is available from
Henry Stewart Talks.
I can also present it live, with additional exercises and discussion, as a one-day course.
