Spring 2021 - Section A
This course will be conducted online using a new interactive online learning platform called Minerva Forum (not Zoom). Forum is designed for greater interactivity and better mimics face-to-face learning environments. The class will consist of synchronous class meetings and help sessions and asynchronous videos, activities, discussions, and peer collaborations. Recordings of all classes will be available for asynchronous viewing. Students will primarily use Minerva Forum, open educational resources instead of a textbook, and Moodle. Students will gain proficiency in conducting analyses in the R programming language.
Spring 2021 - Sections B&C
This course will be taught synchronously online over Zoom. All videos will be recorded for students who need to attend asynchronously. We will be using a free Open Access Textbook that can be downloaded.
