Ryan LaRochelle receives Experiential Teaching and Learning grant

Nov. 04, 2016

Ryan LaRochelle (Visiting Lecturer in Politics) has received an Experiential Learning and Teaching grant to integrate an exit poll assignment in his fall 2016 course: POL105a – Elections in America.  The assignment requires students to write a set of clearly-worded survey questions, devise a sampling strategy informed by the scholarship on survey research, collect responses at precincts in Waltham on Election Day, and analyze and present the results of their poll in class.  The grant, provided by the Experiential Learning and Teaching office at Brandeis, will help pay for student transportation to the polls as well as materials and supplies necessary to complete the assignment.
