Teaching and mentoring are central to my work as a social scientist. The opportunity to learn and work collaboratively with students have been some of the most exciting parts of my experiences as a student and mentee and as an instructor and mentor to others.
In the 2020-2021 academic year, I am teaching the following courses at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst:
SOCIOL 212 Elementary Statistics:
This course provides a social scientific introduction to probability and statistics. Our goal is to learn about quantitative (numerical) data and to learn how to use data, probability, and statistics appropriately to study our social world. You can view a recent version of the syllabus here.
Additional course materials will be available to enrolled students through Moodle and may be available to others upon request.
