Intermediate SNA UCINET


This course is taught by Steve Borgatti. It  is a more technical and in-depth workshop than the Introductory workshop, but covers many of the same concepts. It focuses on the concepts and methods of SNA, particularly as they apply to specific research objectives. In this course, everything is related back to the research questions -- how the network analysis relates to consequences of interest.  In addition, the mathematics behind the measures and techniques are explained. Prior familiarity with network analysis and research in general is assumed. 

This workshop uses the UCINET software  package extensively.  Important note: UCINET is Windows-only software. Please visit our software page in advance of the workshop.  

The course meets for four consecutive days starting May 20: Monday - Thursday from 10:00-12:00 ET and 12:30-2:30 ET. There is a 30-minute lunch break at 12.  A TA (scroll down for contact info) will be available during and just after the sessions to catch people up, answer questions, and bring questions to the instructor's attention.  


Zoom info will be emailed to participants a few days before the workshop. In addition, you will be given access to a portal containing links to slides, videos, exercises, handouts, etc. Note that when doing a hands-on software-intensive workshop via Zoom, it is helpful to have two screens -- one to watch what the instructor is doing, and one to show what you are typing on your own machine.
