Grant Writing: A Trainee Perspective
This was a lecture developed for a graduate grant writing class. Dr. Hayden Hyatt and I were asked to talk about the trainee perspective of grant writing for Dr. Scott Powers’ graduate grant writing class at UF. My sections focused on tips for navigating the NIH process for writing fellowship grants. Hayden’s piece focused specifically on writing skills. I’ve also since written a series of blog posts on my NIH fellowship application experience.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS): Graduate Short Course
This course provided hands-on data collection and analysis experience for graduate students. I co-taught this short course with my PhD advisor, Dr. Rachael Seidler. This course took place as part of UF’s graduate course APK6265 Biomechanical Instrumentation. We first taught the TMS module in the spring of 2020 [essentially right before COVID-19 shutdowns hit].
In the spring of 2021, we reformatted the course to be conducted entirely online, due to COVID. This was my first virtual teaching experience, and it taught me a lot. Virtual teaching also encouraged me to create a YouTube channel to store course videos for students’ studying and future reference.
Here were the 2021 student learning objectives:
