Upcoming Faculty Teaching Visit with Anita Mahadevan-Jansen, Orrin H. Ingram Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Wednesday, February 18th
Anita Mahadevan-Jansen is a professor of Biomedical Engineering and director of CIRTL-at-Vanderbilt, an initiative focused on professional development of STEM graduate students and post-docs around teaching. In BME 260, Anita focuses on helping students develop transferable skills in statistics that they can use to answer a variety of questions in the biomedical arena. Explicitly rejecting a “plug-and-chug” approach, Anita strives to guide students to an understanding of how to choose a statistical approach and understand the math that underlies it. During the teaching visit, students will be completing interactive exercises using laptops to extend their understanding of the mathematical basis of paired T tests. In the post-class discussion, we will discuss pedagogies that Anita chooses to challenge and integrate the diverse learners in her course.
