2011 2011 Online Portal for Social Science Education in Methdology | OPOSSEM
OPOSSEM is an international collaborative effort, funded in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation, to develop an open source, wiki-based textbook for teaching political science research methodology. In addition, the OPOSSEM website provides teaching materials (pedagogical papers, lecture notes, problem and data sets, and assessments) for use by social science faculty. In July 2011, I participated in a "writing sprint" in Austin, TX. I contributed text for teaching modules on the logic of scientific inquiry, experimental design, and law and social science.
