Online/blended education

Vassar College is a member of the Liberal Arts Collaborative for Digital Innovation (LACOL).

 

Projects:

I have been involved in the Course Sharing Project, where we aim at sharing courses across LACOL campuses to expand course offering and keep the liberal arts flavor.

Project #1:

Vassar’s MATH 347 Bayesian Statistics has been offered as a shared/online course for three times:

  • The following YouTube list is the set of lecture recordings in Fall 2019 (67 videos in total).

  • The following YouTube list is the set of lecture recordings in Spring 2019 (62 videos in total).

  • The following YouTube list is the set of lecture recordings in Fall 2017 (30 videos in total).

 

Project #2:

Vassar’s MATH 301 Data Confidentiality is currently offered as a shared/online course.

  • The following YouTube list is the growing set of lecture recordings in Spring 2020.

 

Project #3:

I am one of the 5 instructors of LACOL’s Introduction to Data Science course. Course info: https://lacol.net/critical-ds/
