Here I share materials for a few courses that others may find useful.
Introduction to Statistics. An introduction to null hypothesis testing for undergraduates. The course consists of two lectures per week and one discussion section where students learn a little bit about R. The course is designed around Explaining Psychological Statistics by Barry H. Cohen, but the material is generic enough that it can work with any textbook. The full course materials are included here: lectures, homework assignments, exams, and R code for the discussion sections.
Language and Mind. An introductory course for non-majors, taught as a large lecture course. The course consists of two lectures per week, and one discussion section. The lecture slides are included here. The discussion sections are created by graduate teaching assistants, so are not included here. In some years I have offered make-up assignments for students who miss discussion section. Those are included as well.
Language Science. An introductory linguistics course geared toward psych majors, taught as a smaller course. The course consists of two lectures per week with take-home problem sets. The lecture slides and assignments included here. This is similar to the language and mind course above, but with more depth in the linguistic theory sections, plus problem sets.
Experimental Syntax Methods. A complete introduction to the design and analysis of acceptability judgment experiments, with over 350 slides and dozens of R scripts that work with sample data.
EEG Methods. The goal of this course is to learn EEG from scratch, with a focus on two popular analysis techniques in psycholinguistics: ERPs and time-frequency decomposition. It is designed to work with two textbooks: Luck's ERP textbook and Cohen's TF textbook.
Linking Grammars and Parsers. A seminar to explore the relationship between formal grammars and formal parsers. This is primarily a collection of readings that the class found useful. (Many thanks to Tim Hunter and Ellen Lau for suggestions.)
Syntax and Cognitive Science. A seminar to explore the relationship between the concrete work we do in syntax and the bigger picture questions that form the foundation of cognitive science. This is primarily a set of readings for discussion. The first half reviews the fundamental questions in cognitive science, and the second half reviews major topics in syntax (with the goal of discussing the relationship between the two).
Acceptability Judgments. This link currently goes to the experimental syntax class. There is a complete set of scripts for analyzing and plotting an acceptability judgment experiment.
EEG. This link currently goes to the EEG methods class. There is a complete set of scripts for analyzing and plotting an ERP experiment in both EEGLAB and Fieldtrip. There are also scripts for performing TF analyses in Fieldtrip.
