However, the funds for the analysis are wasted if samples are collected at inappropriate locations or do…

To recap, I’m prepping a new graduate level course on experimental design and data analysis (EDDA) that will serve MS and PhD students from geosciences and civil and environmental engineering. I’ve been working through the SERC course design tutorial, and so far I’ve figured out context and constraints, over-arching goals, and ancillary skills goals. It’s…

Now that things at ScienceBlogs have returned to normal, and I’ve drawn down my stash of reader emails, it’s time to get back to work on my series on course design. For those who haven’t been playing along (1.1, 1.2) I’m prepping a new graduate level course on experimental design and data analysis (EDDA) that…

Yesterday, I explained the context and constraints on the course, and today I’m mulling on the course goals. I’m supposed to identify 1-3 over-arching goals for the course and 1-2…
