We are pleased to announce this semester’s Taste of Methodology workshop on the sequential, multiple assignment, randomized trial (SMART) for constructing adaptive interventions. The December 16 workshop will be presented by Methodology Center Investigator Daniel Almirall, research assistant professor at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research.
Interventions that adapt at the right times can improve participant outcomes while decreasing the cost and burden of the intervention. SMART designs provide the data needed to construct high-quality adaptive interventions.
Taste of Methodology is a series of brief workshops for Penn State faculty that offers an overview of innovative methods along with lunch. This semester’s workshop will present the concepts and applications of SMART in order to give faculty an efficient way to assess SMART’s potential for their research.
