Teaching Research Methods at Oxy

Teaching Research Methods at Oxy- A Cross-Division, Cross-Discipline Conversation


With support from Center for Teaching Excellence, a few of us got together last semester to talk about teaching Research Methods. We found many similarities between our courses; we also found that we often ran into similar obstacles, in terms of resources and pedagogy.  After sharing our ideas, the Dean's Office offered some support to extend extend our conversation about research methods and basic quantitative/statistical literacy to faculty across departments and divisions.

To that end, we'd like to invite you to help us better understand the limitations we face teaching research methods and to help us come up with some practical as well as innovative solutions.

In our first meeting we will present some starting ideas and see how the broader group would like to move forward.

Please RSVP to so we can make sure to have enough lunches.
