with Kathryn Plank, The Ohio State University; and Michele DiPietro, Carnegie Mellon University.

2:00 to 2:30 pm Eastern time, August 12th, 2008

There are many good reasons to incorporate thinking about diversity into a course, not the least of which is that it can have a real impact on student learning and cognitive development. In this webinar, we will explore both how the tools of statistics can help students better understand complex and controversial issues, and, in the other direction, how using these complex and controversial issues can help facilitate deeper learning of statistics.
