SmartPLS Path Modeling: Foundations, Applications and Advances - February 14, 15, 16, 2012
This workshop will be held at the University of Newcastle City Precinct from Tuesday the 14th to Thursday the 16th of February 2012.
This workshop has been designed for full-time faculty and Ph.D. students who are interested to learn how to use structural equation modeling (SEM) using PLS path modeling (PLS-SEM) in their own research applications. A basic knowledge of multivariate statistics and SEM techniques is helpful, but not required.
The objectives of this course are to provide an in-depth methodological introduction into the PLS path modeling approach (the nature of causal modeling, analytical objectives, some statistics), (2) the evaluation of measurement results, and (3) complementary analytical techniques. Practical applications and the use of a PLS software application are an integral part of this course.
