  • Teaching Assistant - Introduction to Quantitative Research Methods in Education
    This class covers the basic concepts of quantitative methods and the statistical methods most commonly used in education research. The first half of the course introduces sampling, descriptive statistics and the inferential statistical methods of confidence intervals and significance tests, applied to means and proportions. The second half introduces bivariate methods (emphasizing contingency table analysis, correlation, bivariate regression, and analysis of variance) and experimental methods for supporting causal inference.

  • Instructor - Introductory Statistics Workshop
    This workshop is a friendly introduction to statistical reasoning and Stata and emphasizes how statistics can help understand problems in education. The course topics are selected to better prepare students for EDPT 652 (Multiple Regression) by refreshing relevant math skills and statistical concepts. Topics include numerical and graphical summaries of data, data acquisition, probability, inference, hypothesis testing, and correlation. We will apply statistical concepts to data and reach conclusions about real-world problems. We will also familiarize ourselves with Stata and learn some important commands along the way.

  • Teaching Assistant - Issues in Human Motivation
    This course is designed to introduce students to theories of human motivation and their applications in educational settings. We explore the primary theories currently in use to describe, explain, and predict education-related motivation. Along the way, we examine the historical context in which the theories evolved, and the key players associated with each theory. We also apply these theories to the issues that practitioners face in their current and anticipated work environments.

  • Teaching Assistant - Learning and Instruction 
    This course is designed to examine foundational as well as advanced topics in human thinking, reasoning, and learning as it applies in pk-12, higher education, informal learning environments, and workplace learning. The course focuses on understanding change, from individual growth, development, and knowledge change, to how institutional, organizational, and cultural change can be viewed from the lens of learning as a process.
