When I left IST and came to the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence, one of the biggest challenges for me was the scope of work. I was used to working within a single College here at PSU compared to working with the Institute, interacting with Faculty and administrators across the entire state-wide system. Over the last 8 months, I've discovered many new centers or organizations within Penn State. The latest discovery is the Methodology Center. From their website:
The Methodology Center is an interdisciplinary center that comprises faculty, research associates, post-docs, and students from several academic disciplines, including human development, psychology, statistics, and public health. Our work is funded by the National Institutes of Health and by the National Science Foundation.We recently received a methodological question here in the Institute and struggled to find an answer until Ann pointed us to the Methodology Center. Thanks Ann!
