2016 has been a great year for dreams coming true – one of them being getting the chance to teach! Back in November 2016, together with a great team of graduates, PhD and undergraduate students, and researchers, we launched Coding Club. Coding Club is a peer-to-peer learning community aiming to develop quantitative skills, in particular fluency in statistics and programming. Our goal is to turn statistics anxiety and code fear into motivation and inspiration, and we are working towards creating a supportive learning environment. Since it’s the start of a new year, and it is way too cold outside, I thought this would be a good time to reflect on our work so far.
