Monday 9th, 18:30-19:30
- Sophie Lee (United Kingdom)
Statistical skills are highly sought after with more professionals seeking formal training in generic methods. We are interested in exploring the development of short courses aimed at giving transferable skills for the workplace. Moving the focus away from exam attainment to practical applications has implications for delivery, altering the teacher-student relationship. The aim of this SIG is to share experiences of delivery of such courses, and how others might be encouraged to venture into this area.
