Workshop I (Saturday 7th, 14:30-18:30; Room: 2-Study)

Engaging Students and Developing Data Detectives and Story-Tellers



Intended for instructors who’d like to integrate data-driven pedagogy into their Introductory Statistics courses. The unique learner experience during the exploration and analysis of real data in JMP will be demonstrated using a case study approach. We will explore and analyze a collection of examples including geographic, messy and unstructured data. Students having access to interactive and visual tools cannot wait to “j(u)mp” into their data, making JMP particularly suited for teaching the underlying concepts of real-world analytics in an engaging way.

All workshop content will be shared with the attendees who are welcome to follow the demos on their own computers. A free 30-day licence of JMP 14 for Windows or Mac can be downloaded at www.jmp.com/try and should be pre-installed before the workshop.

Attendees will need to bring laptops with JMP 14 installed.
