High quality materials related to statistics content and pedagogy are needed for secondary mathematics teacher education. This paper will describe the design, implementation and research cycle utilized by a multi-institutional team to develop online modules for preservice teachers focused on statistical thinking and tools for teaching statistical inquiry. Design principles that guided creation and development will be shared, including: 1) use of free and accessible tools for data investigation, and 2) connection to classroom practice through use of video of classrooms, students, and expert discussions. The project’s role in further developments to CODAP, a free Common Online Data Analysis Platform, will be highlighted. Sample materials will be shared and results of a pilot test implementing the first module across multiple institutions will be presented.
