Favorite Thing About Teaching Online: I’d have to say I have two favorite things about online teaching. The first is the flexibility it provides to focus on educational goals while still paying proper attention to work and family responsibilities. The second is the relationships I build with my students. I teach courses in Research Methods and Biostatistics, two fields that can be a bit overwhelming and even intimidating at first. I really enjoy watching my students grow in their knowledge and confidence in these fields as the semester progresses. The ability to conduct and properly interpret research is what makes a doctorate an expert in their field. It is a lot of fun for me to be a small part of that transformation.
