Gov 2001 Learning Resources

Gov 2001 Learning Resources

  • The Lecture Notes & Videos page will be the main source of course content. This is where you'll find the videos, slides, notes, and R code from the weekly lecture and section.
  • For in class discussion, we will be using a new teaching tool called Learning Catalytics.  We will send you a subscription number the first week of class to get you signed up.  In order to use this tool, you will need to bring either a laptop, smart phone, or tablet with internet access to class.
  • All questions about class material should be posted to the discussion board on Canvas You will get quicker responses to your questions because your classmates can help you, too!  If you do not have access to the site after the registration period has ended, please e-mail Stephen and Solé.
  • Your questions may have been answered in previous years!  Check out the Gov 2001 e-mail list archives for a searchable dataset over a decade of Gov 2001 e-mail questions.
