Teaching Statistics Using Active Learning and Technology

Gambier, Ohio

Registration Fee: $175 per person ($250 for registrations received after June 6, 2011)

The Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) Report gives a set of general recommendations for teaching statistics at the college level. This workshop is designed to model the GAISE guidelines by working through a collection of activities designed to teach important concepts in an introductory statistics class. There will be an emphasis on using real data, communicating conceptual understanding, and using a variety of available technologies. The course will be taught in a computerequipped classroom where we will make extensive use of Minitab and R. The goal is to provide the current thinking in teaching statistics and associated resources to help the instructor who has limited experience in teaching the subject. There will be ample opportunities for the participants to learn from each other during and after the on-site intensive component.
