This workshop is intended for faculty members who have experience with teaching introductory statistics. The goal of this workshop is to help participants to revise their introductory statistics course in two ways:
Using randomization-based methods, as opposed to methods based on the normal distribution, to introduce concepts of statistical inference, and
Emphasizing the overarching process of conducting statistical investigations, from formulating a question and collecting data through exploring data and drawing inferences to communicating results, throughout the course.
The workshop will provide direct experience with hands-on activities designed to introduce students to fundamental concepts of inference using randomization-based methods. Workshop participants will receive a preliminary edition of a textbook titled Introduction to Statistical Investigations. The learning activities involve using freely available applets to explore concepts and analyze real data from genuine research studies. Presenters will also offer implementation and assessment suggestions during these activity-based sessions and discussion sessions.
