I have been lucky enough to teach courses (mostly on quantitative methods) at a number of interesting places. While many of these are not being actively updated, I maintain links to course materials at other places in the interest of maintaining access for students from those course who might want to return and brush up their skills.


I teach a four-course Methodology sequence in our graduate program at UWM. The first two (POLSCI 701 and 702) are the intro stats and linear models classes that all of our students have to take. The third class (POLSCI 935) is a pretty standard limited dependent variables course (though we do discuss other things, like model selection/averaging, missing data and multiple imputation, etc...). The fourth class (new in the Fall of 2012) is a course on applied Bayesian Statistics aimed more broadly at the Social Sciences. The links below will take you to course-specific pages.

ICPSR Summer Program

I feel privileged to have been involved in the ICPSR Summer Program (in various capacities) continuously since the Summer of 2001. I started as a student (2001-2003), became a teaching assistant (2002-2006) and finally an instructor (2006-present). I believe the ICPSR Summer Program provides top-notch training at all levels of quantitative methodology. I feel that it has changed the course of my career for the better and hope that it is able to do the same for others. I have taught three workshops and a one-day lecture on LaTeX. The links below take you to course-specific pages with more information about each.

Essex Summer School in Social Science Data Analysis and Collection

In 2008, I taught a one-week course at the Essex Summer School in Social Science Data Analysis and Collection entitled Improving Regression Analysis. This course was aimed at providing information to help researchers better specify the right-hand-side of their linear model equations (dealing with non-linearity, outliers, etc...). The link below will take you to the page for that course.

University of Oxford

I was a post-doc in the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford from 2006-2009. I taught a few different methodology courses there, generally lab complements to theoretical lectures for introduction and intermediate statistics, but I also taught a short course on measurement. Links to materials for the Intermediate Statistics and Measurement courses are below.
