Continuing education

As an instructor at UF dedicated to excellence in both teaching and research, I try to regularly engage in continuing education and scholarship related to (1) pedagogy and teaching practice; and (2) data analysis and statistics. A partial record of courses taken, which supplement ongoing reading and self-study, follows.
