Description

The 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 datasets of interest, communicating conceptual understanding, and using a variety of available technologies. 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 the on-site intensive component and by discussion boards, chat sessions, and blog postings after the on-site experience.
