Trainees create their own courses

IGERT trainees have in the past year spontaneously created their own courses, in which they share their expertise via formal instruction. IGERT trainee Constantine Lignos offered a course in Python programming, the computer-programming language of choice among many analyzing linguistic phenomena. IGERT trainee Josef Fruehwald offered a course in the statistical programming language R, teaching students the details of multi-level linear modeling, a method used in several disciplines, including Psychology, Linguistics, Biology and Computer science to analyze experimental results. Finally, IGERT trainee Kyle Gorman offered a course in the spring of last academic year introducing R (and simpler linear models) to novices.
