Colloquium: “Reflections on Teaching: The 4 “Es”

February 16, 2018

Although each individual needs to find their own style, some elements stand out in my own experiences. I have categorized these into the 4 “Es”: Experience, Enthusiasm, Engagement, and Evolution. Experience can include observations as a student or how classes reacted to your lecture. These experiences can then form the basis with which to find your style. Enthusiasm is a must; if you find a topic dull and boring your students will as well. Personal examples, real world events, or videos can be used to demonstrate enthusiasm. Engagement involves the students in the learning process and helps them to understand what they do and do not know.  Engagement can span in-class activities to leading part of a class. Finally, evolution involves not only updating lectures or topics year-to-year, but also reflecting on one’s style to see what is and is not working. I will discuss my own experiences with each of the 4 “Es”

Colloquium: “Equivalence Testing: Turning Null Hypothesis Testing Upside Down”

February 09, 2018

Researchers in psychology are frequently interested in testing for a lack of relationship. For example, they might want to show that control and experimental groups are equivalent at baseline on confounding variables, that the correlation between two variables is similar across groups, or that there is no interaction between predictors in ANOVA or regression. This talk will introduce the methods and practices of equivalence testing. In addition to providing some background on equivalence testing, the discussion will also address topics such as how equivalence testing tackles important limitations of traditional null hypothesis significance testing, issues involved in setting appropriate lack of association bounds, and how equivalence testing is making its way into the methods of structural equation modeling and measurement invariance.

When: February 9, 2018, refreshments at 2:30 p.m.

Where: P408 Duff Roblin Talk at 3:00 p.m.
