Sept.22: Jeff Edwards, PhD, Live CARMA Webcast

The speaker is Jeff Edwards, PhD, Belk Distinguished Professor of Organizational Behavior, Kenan-Flagler Business School, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Edwards will speak on the topic of “Extending Methods for Integrating Moderation and Mediation.”  This presentation takes a back-to-basics approach for specifying and testing models that integrate moderation and mediation, explaining how the equations for any model can be written and combined to derive, estimate, and compare any effects of interest. We also take a behind-the scenes look at the bootstrap, showing how bootstrap coefficients generated by any statistical program can be used to construct confidence intervals of interest in Excel.
