PLU Psychology student/faculty collaboration

Amber Matteson, PLU Senior Psychology, Physics Double Major and Psi Chi Vice President recently taught herself the R statistics program while serving as a Teaching Apprentice to help PLU Psychology learn R better. This January, she was the sole instructor for a three-part workshop that led four faculty (shown here) through a series of lessons she developed using the Stat232/Psyc242 labs developed¬†for Excel and SPSS. This spring she plans to work with the Psi Chi chapter to offer these lessons to her peers (or other faculty). She is currently drafting a book proposal called, “Teaching Myself R as an Undergraduate (and then Teaching my Professors)”.

This was a very unique PLU teaching/experience, and we’re excited to see how it progresses this spring.
