Teaching and supervision
Note: I am not currently accepting applications for doctoral candidates at Harvard Medical School.
I still teach the University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre courses on Item Response Theory and Computer Adaptive Testing using R and Concerto. These courses are designed to endow postgraduate students and researchers with the technical skills to conduct psychometrics analyses using IRT and create their own computer-adaptive tests using Concerto.
We provided these courses on-site at University of Cambridge (see here for dates of the next course) and can also offer training courses tailored to the needs of your institution. Arrangements for off-site courses can be made with Professor John Rust.
Feedback from previous courses:
|"The course was incredibly well-pitched.. it was the best course I have ever attended in terms of quality of teaching!"
| "Chris and Aiden were engaging speakers who clearly were very familiar with both the theoretical underpinnings of | IRT and CAT, as well as the Concerto platform. As instructors, they managed the diversity in skills and experience in | the classroom well."
| "A really great atmosphere and great teaching that fostered a collaborative learning environment."
| "I liked the 'spirit' of the workshop which was intense, motivating and very hands-on - thank you so much for a brilliant course!"
| "An excellent three days; it was incredibly informative, well-paced and well organised."
I was twice invited to talk on "Modern Psychometrics" at the School of Psychiatry, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. The lecture received a mean rating of 4.6/5 (where 5 was excellent) and was described as "inspirational" in open-text feedback from attendees.
