Two Days workshop on
The Current Development of SEM and Data analysis using SmartPLS 3.0
This is a 2-days workshop that will introduce the use of structural equation modeling (SEM is a family of statistical model that seek to explain the relationships among multiple variables) which is the most popular analysis software at the moment. This workshop will help postgraduate students/new researchers on how to do basic analysis using the SmartPLS software and how to present them professionally. This workshop will use practical hands on approach with real research data sets with research questions that can be answered using the data available. Some useful tips on how and where to get published will be given.
1. To assist postgraduate students in producing appropriate analysis for their research theses
2. To assis new lectures in producing research papers with higher level analysis.
1. Lecturers and postgraduate students in Institutions of Higher learning.
2. Aspiring researchers who have intention to embark on empirical research.
