“Before attending the course, I had seen Peter (Tennant) deliver a short introduction to causal inference for the UK Reproducibility Network, and I had read ‘The Effect’ by Nick Huntington-Klein’. Attending the course really cemented my knowledge and allowed me to develop some more advanced thinking!
There was a real sense of openness and discovery in the group that was both forgiving of past mistakes and optimistic about new ways to do research with observational data. I really enjoyed the fact that those attending the course had a mix of disciplines, skills and knowledge and that the tutors were accommodating to all levels.
Six months later, I can honestly say that I have thought about this training and the things I learned every day since; it was truly revelatory and I believe it has allowed me to make a step-change in how I design research.
Within weeks of completing the training, I registered my PhD student on the course and I recommend it to anyone who will listen. Every quantitative researcher using observational data will eventually need to learn causal inference, and this course is the place to do it!”
