from to (Europe/Berlin)
at Mainz, Germany ( MedienRaum, 3rd floor )

Introduction to PISA through examples and hands-on exercises, guided by the PISA development team. If you are new to the PISA analysis software, then this workshop is for you. Learn everything you need to know from basic plotting and parameter settings to writing and executing your own analysis.

The bootcamp officially ends Wed. at 12, but we would like to offer anyone interested to spend the rest of the week in Mainz. We have plenty of desks and it could be an opportunity to spend more time working on your PISA related projects.

A zoom link will be available for remote attendance.
Participation is free of charge.
