The Workshop in Methods (WIM) was created in 2009 with the mission of providing introductory education and training in sophisticated research methods to graduate students and faculty in the social sciences at Indiana University. Our goal is to supplement statistics and methods courses across the Bloomington campus with topical workshops led by leading methodological scholars from IU and across the United States. The initial idea for WIM began with Scott Long, who discussed his vision with Dr. William Alex Pridemore. Pridemore created WIM and directed the series until 2013. In 2013, the Social Science Research Commons began coordinating and hosting WIM, working with the WIM advisory boards and WIM directors Dr. Stephen Benard (2014-2017) and Dr. Patricia McManus (2017-2020).
