PIAAC Workshop Week in Germany


  • GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences 6-8 Unter Sachsenhausen Köln, NRW, 50667 Germany

GESIS offers a PIAAC Workshop Week, on October 26th – October 30th, 2015, sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

The Workshop Week is a joint workshop with instructors from DPC, Hamburg, and WZB, Berlin, and consists of two consecutive workshops. These will teach junior researchers, interested in PIAAC, to analyze the PIAAC data in a competent way. Additionally, the workshops will provide an overview of existing and new data analysis tools and methods. A key aspect will be multilevel analyses with PIAAC. Participants will also have the chance to present their research projects. During and after the workshops participants will have the chance to discuss specific analytic problems with the instructors and their fellow participants.

The workshops address Master and PhD students as well as Postdocs, who are interested in working with the PIAAC data and want to expand their methodological knowledge regarding international large-scale assessments and multilevel analyses. Both workshops will be held in English. Participation and travel costs will be covered for participants from Germany.

You can apply to the Workshop Week with a short CV and an abstract (max. 1 page) about your research interest and ideas until July 31st, 2015.
