Course Materials Development (Tier 2)


About ten instructors who attend the bootcamp will be selected to develop course materials in the Fall semester. They will be engaged in a semester-long collaborative endeavor to develop teaching and learning materials of Bayesian methods for undergraduate students in their disciplines that are at public dissemination quality. Instructors of similar STEM disciplines will be teamed up, and each team is mentored by one of the PIs. Depending on the instructor’s objective and their plan of introducing Bayesian methods in their undergraduate curriculum, we expect some to develop a Bayesian module to be part of an existing course while others to develop a full Bayesian course as part of their curriculum offerings.


Instructors selected to participate in course material development will be compensated with $1,500 each for their time and effort.


All participants to the BATS Bootcamp in Summer 2023 can apply to Tier 2 by submitting the Tier 2 Application form. The application closes on Friday July 21. If you submit multiple applications (accidentally, or because you made changes), the last application will be considered - if this is not desired, please contact Mine Dogucu at
