I wanted to let my CAUSEweb colleagues know about the upcoming Fall offering of my
Teaching Statistics through Data Investigations MOOC for Educators. Many college level
faculty and TAs teaching intro level statistics content have found the course beneficial
to inspire new teaching strategies, tools, and frameworks---all aligned with the GAISE
K-12 and College frameworks!
It’s a completely free professional learning opportunity designed primarily for educators
who teach statistics in middle school through early college, but is relevant for those who
teach disciplines that use data-based explorations extensively to make claims and
inferences (e.g., Social sciences, science). This course allows participants to learn,
along with colleagues from around the world, to use an investigation cycle to teach
statistics and to help students explore data to make evidence-based claims.
The 5-unit course will be open Sept 26th- December 19th for flexibility in engagement!
Participants can earn certificate of completions and have an opportunity to also pursue
micro-credentials and badges to assess and "certify" their understandings of key
tools for teaching statistics. Please share with colleagues and teachers in local middle
and high schools!
and feel free to ask me questions about the
course!! ( hollylynne(a)ncsu.edu )
