This two-day workshop on Meta-Analysis will guide attendees through the major steps of meta-analysis, including the reasons for meta-analysis, searching and coding the literature, basic analyses, and write-up. Participants are expected to have a working knowledge of ANOVA and/or multiple regression. Instruction consists primarily of lecture, though we will reserve the last hour of each day for individual or small-group consultation. The emphasis will be practical with minimal emphasis on statistical underpinnings. The material will be presented independent of any specific computer program; instead, participants will learn to conduct analyses using software with which they are familiar (e.g., Excel, SPSS, SAS, R).
By the end of this seminar, attendees will learn the necessary tools to conduct a publishable meta-analysis. This seminar will also equip students to understand and critically evaluate meta-analyses that they read. Finally, this seminar can serve as the foundation for learning more advanced topics in meta-analysis.

I am looking for a summer babysitter for my kids, who will be 9 and 11 this summer. I'm looking for specific days and times -- Wed and Friday (and possibly some Mondays) from the week of June 26th through the week of July 24th (5 weeks). From 7:30 am to 4 pm.
Responsibilities will include taking the kids to swim practice and doing whatever they want for the rest of the day -- staying at the pool, mini-golf, movies, hanging at home, whatever. I definitely need a responsible driver.
This would be a great job for a student who is taking classes this summer and doesn't want to work too much, or someone who isn't going to be in town for the whole summer.
Please email email@example.com to set up an interview. Thank you!

My name is Vias Nicolaides and I want to inform you of a wonderful opportunity to study Psychology abroad in Cyprus this summer! Apply here!
In cooperation with George Mason University, I will be spearheading a study abroad program in my country, Cyprus, a safe, beautiful, and intriguing island in the Mediterranean. Check out the video at the bottom of the post to learn more about Cyprus!
Cyprus is considered the pearl of the Mediterranean and also the birthplace of the Goddess Aphrodite.
With warm sun, sparkling sea, welcoming people and wonderful scenery, Cyprus offers visitors a superb holiday destination packed with unforgettable experiences, extraordinary sights and exquisite Mediterranean cuisine.
Undergraduate and graduate students will have the opportunity to take 6 Psychology credits as well as tour the island and interact with locals and experience all that Cyprus has to offer (e.g. sandy beaches, exquisite food, and over 8,000 years of history)!
Instruction will take place at the Cyprus University of Technology from Monday-Thursday.
Students will have a unique opportunity to acquire theoretical knowledge on human behavior and their areas of interest.
Moreover, students will develop applied research skills, including statistical analysis skills and using SPSS.
In short, we will learn how to quantify and analyze human behavior and gain insight on how culture shapes behavior.
From Friday-Sunday we will be taking tours and overnight stays in key locations around the island and immerse ourselves in the Greek culture and tradition.
Finally, it is worth mentioning that there are scholarships and financial aid available to help finance your trip.
In addition, tuition for study abroad programs is paid at the in-state rate, even for out-of-state and international students!
Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Thank you for reading and I hope to see you in Cyprus this summer! :)
