Teaching


Online Course Development

Developed ST 501 and ST 502 (Fundamentals of Inference I and Fundamentals of Inference II) for the online format. Created videos, interactive applets, and discussion boards.

Flipped Classroom Course Development

Created a new class (ST 308 - Introduction to R) in the flipped classroom mold. Created pre-class videos, walk-throughs, and activities. Based in class activities on working in groups and used multiple large group projects in place of exams.

Transformed ST 307 - Introduction to SAS to the flipped course structure similar to ST 308.

New Course Development

Developed new Mathematical Statistics graduate courses (ST 501 and ST 502, see above). Classes aimed at Statistics master's students and graduate students interested in a minor in statistics. Use of software and simulation throughout (including class projects) to enhance understanding and technical skills.
