Success in the College ClassroomMicrobiology6992J. TrempeWinter?YThis is a special topics course, but someone blogged about it: http://cemigh.wordpress.com/2011/01/28/teaching-philosophy-part-2/

This seminar-type course is designed to help you become a more effective teacher in the sciences (or in any field). Well worth the time. -- Addendum: one of the best classes I've taken at OSU as someone who hopes to teach at the college level. It focuses on teaching adult learner (college students)

Introduction to Population GeneticsGenetics5303M. Blouin?YA good overview of the class, but its up to you as a graduate student to get into the detailsBlouin basically goes through the book chapter by chapter. Could be so much better. I love pop gen and think it is exciting, but this class was boring. Recommended if you need a refresher in popgen, but be prepared for some frustration.

Wildland Plant EcophysiologyRangeland Ecology & Management6434R. Mata-GonzalazWinterYhttp://catalog.oregonstate.edu/CourseDetail.aspx?subjectcode=RNG&coursenumber=643likely wouldn't qualify for a graduate class in any other institution. Pass on this one unless the teacher has been changed

Community Structure and Analysis Biology570/6704B. McCuneWinterYhttp://catalog.oregonstate.edu/CourseDetail.aspx?subjectcode=BI&coursenumber=670This class is essentially multivariate stats for ecologists. Excellent class. Need to have data to analyze. Good for anyone doing any kind of community analysis. Having ST 511/512 under your belt is best

Natural Resources Data AnalysisForest Ecosystems and Society5244L. Ganio20 hours easilyWinterYhttp://catalog.oregonstate.edu/CourseDetail.aspx?subjectcode=FES&coursenumber=524Focuses on experimental design and applied statistics principles in a graduate setting. Analyze your own data! Changed to FES 524 from FS 523. Most useful for folks using linear regression, mixed effects models but not much in the way of generalized models that use different distributionsTake this class your second year after ST511 and 512 and once you already have data. No tests. Final project is to analyze and report on your own data. Great review of statistics (better than the stats classes). Also provides a great introduction to R. This was easily the most useful and informative class I took during my time here. Highly recommend it.
