Session 9H (Monday 9th, 11:00-12:30,   Level 2 - AV Study Room)

Teaching Statistics Online



Online courses are increasingly important for offering flexible learning options for students. However, online courses also provide an opportunity to rethink the teaching and learning of statistics in a broader context. In this session, presenters will share key ingredients for a successful online course, including advantages they offer in addressing diverse student backgrounds and poor motivation. A variety of tools will be discussed, such as the use of pre-recorded lecture videos, online tutorials and self-directed modules for using statistical software, as well as simulations for addressing challenging concepts underlying statistical inference. Presenters will also discuss ways in which they have evaluated these courses, including improvements to student attitudes and outcomes.
