Biostatistics for Public Health Students: What Benefits Does a "Flipped" Classroom Have?

Thursday, January 30th, 20202:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET

Presented by: Thomas M. Braun, PhD (University of Michigan)


The idea of a "flipped classroom" has been integrated for two years into the introductory biostatistics course required of all Masters of Public Health (MPH) students at the University of Michigan. The course was divided into eight modules, with each module consisting of one or more video lectures and three modes of assessment: a quiz and two in-class projects. The in-class projects consisted of (1) data analysis of contemporary public health data sets using Excel and (2) review of statistical methods and results in manuscripts published recently in the American Journal of Public Health. This talk will review my experiences with the development of the course, with the implementation of the course, and student input received from anonymous end-of-semester evaluations.
