A Webinar for HBCU & MSI Faculty and Staff

Offered in January 2022

Purpose and context

Project TIER has been hosting Faculty Development Workshops on teaching transparent and reproducible methods of quantitative data analysis since 2013.

Most recently, in March 2021, we conducted a virtual workshop for faculty and staff from Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, and Spelman College. Building on the success of that event, we are planning a series of workshops open to instructors at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) in the US. Our goal is to offer these workshops beginning in the fall of 2022.

In January 2022, as part of the planning for the workshops, we will hold a free webinar for instructors of quantitative methods or applied statistics courses at HBCUs and MSIs who are interested in learning more about how they could benefit from a Project TIER workshop. The webinar will give an overview of the transparent and reproducible methods we present at the workshops, as well as the diverse range of strategies that can be used to teach these methods to your students. We will invite webinar participants to provide feedback, which will then help us determine the most effective content and format for the workshops.
