Introducing quantitative research - inferential statistics In-Person

This session is part of a three-session series that highlight the key elements of statistics that are used as part of the research journey. We will explore inferential statistics in the session (and the next session will bringing descriptive and inferential
statistics together), with an aim to demystify the jargon that is often a barrier to both the understanding and carrying out of quantitative research.
