For Carleton Faculty

Workshops and Presentations

The Quantitative Inquiry, Reasoning, and Knowledge (QuIRK) initiative sponsors December workshops for you to learn about effective pedagogies, resources, and expertise related to quantitative reasoning regardless of discipline or across all disciplines. The Perlman Learning and Teaching Center (LTC) and other curricular initiatives also partner with QuIRK for workshops and presentations.

Consultations and Funding

Other faculty members and academic support professionals can help you:

  • consider learning goals
  • estimate time requirements
  • identify sources of support for students as they work on assignments
  • secure access to data, tools, or expertise relevant to assignments including guest lectures or focused instruction sessions
QuIRK offers course creation and revision grants, provides funding for student research assistants, and maintains a list of others at Carleton with expertise that may be useful for an assignment.

Software and Information Resources

Faculty and students alike can work with reference and instruction librarians and academic technologists in finding and using data files and statistical tools. Additionally, when data are purchased through the library rather than individually this means that all members of the Carleton community can have access to them.

Assignment Collections

The Science Education Resource Center (SERC) houses a rich collection of QuIRK-related assignments in categories such as quantitative writing, teaching with data, and quantitative skills. Carleton faculty members have contributed many of the assignments.

Copyright, Licensing, and Institutional Review Board

Some data sources have licensing and copyright restrictions that determine access or even dissemination of information in findings. Carleton's Institutional Review Board can answer questions about the protection of research subjects.

Production Meetings

Creating new assignments can be a time-consuming process, particularly if a proposed assignment warrants support from multiple groups on campus. Academic support professionals can research resources and support options after learning about your assignment, followed by a production meeting with an informed group discussion amongst all involved parties. Production meetings result in a concrete set of resources and support options.
