Program for the NEPS data trainings 2022 available

This year, the Research Data Center at the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) is again conducting a series of German- and English-language training courses on the data portfolio of the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS). The offer consists of several basic and advanced modules, which can be attended separately. All events take place virtually via Zoom. Participation is free of charge; registration can be made informally by e-mail.

In addition to data documentation, the Research Data Center offers a total of eight NEPS data trainings throughout the year. The courses are held partly in German and partly in English. Half of the training sessions are scheduled over two days, with the first day reserved for basic modules on how to start working with the NEPS data and the second day for advanced modules on specific topics. More information on the individual courses, including the daily program and a brief description of each module, as well as the registration link, can be found on the following website. Registrations for the data training on January 27 and 28 are still possible. We are looking forward to a broad interest.
