Description

As dog trainers become more adept at finding studies, it's important that we move beyond reading the abstract. We need to learn how to read the nuts and bolts of a study. The overwhelming amount of jargon can make reading a study seem like it's written in a foreign language. This webinar's purpose is to de-code the jargon. It's to help us understand what claims we can make, and which ones are premature. It's about having the confidence to know what a study actually might be saying. It's also about having the confidence in knowing that when someone says, "You can't apply that to the real world!", you'll know when that might be true, and when it might not be true. Webinar Objectives How to read a research study Types of research studies The purpose and function of different study formats Overview of the sections of a research report How important are the number or participants Control Groups - testing if something is "better than what?" Validity - Is something interfering? Jargon - what is a "MANOVA" anyway? Statistics. Doesn't "P" means it's a good study? "But the lab doesn't apply to the real world."
