WTF (Wendy Turner-Frey) apps ready for download
WTF are the initials of Dr. Wendy Turner-Frey, associate professor of social work, but in the age of texting, these three letters make some of us think of something entirely different - Turner-Frey’s intention when developing the name of her new apps for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad: WTF Research and WTF Statistics.
“Students often point out what my initials can stand for, so I thought, ‘I’ll name my application that – it’ll at least get students interested.’”
WTF Research is essentially a decision-making tree for graduate students conducting research. Turner-Frey has used a similar process in past social work graduate classes to teach research methods. “One student pointed out that I should turn my laminated decision-making tree into an app,” Turner-Frey said. So she did.
