An introduction to multilevel modeling Prof. Vicente González-Romá, University of Valencia, Spain Organizational behavior takes place in different contexts (e.g., work teams, project teams, departments, and the whole organization) whose properties (e.g., climate, culture, size, leadership) impact on individuals’ behavior. An intriguing general question is to estimate the aforementioned impact. To do so, a special type of models (multilevel or hierarchical linear models) is needed. In this course, an introduction to multilevel modeling in organizational research will be provided. The goal of the course is as follows: participants will be able to build multilevel models for estimating direct cross-level effects and cross-level interactions. The course emphasis will be put on understanding the rationale and logic underlying the model building process. This will allow participants to translate their multilevel research questions into multilevel models. A basic knowledge of multiple regression is required. Participants will not need to bring their laptops (only a notebook and a pen are required).
