"Content Barriers to Effective Pedagogy in the Introductory Statistics Course"
with Mark L. Berenson, Montclair State University

2:00 to 2:30 pm Eastern time, December 11th, 2007

As we consider how we might improve our introductory statistics course we are constrained by a variety of environmental/logistical and pedagogical issues that must be addressed if we want our students to complete the course saying it was useful, it was relevant and practical, and that it increased their communicational, computational, technological and analytical skills. If not properly considered, such issues may result in the course being considered unsatisfying, incomprehensible, and/or unnecessarily obtuse.

This Webinar will focus on key course content concerns that must be addressed and will engage participants in discussing resolutions. Participants will also have the opportunity to describe and discuss other content barriers to effective statistical pedagogy.
