Hi Stats Ed friends!
We all know that many countries have increased the expectations for learning statistical
ideas, and AP Statistics enrollment in the US is on the rise! One of the key ideas in
statistics is learning to make inferences based on data . We also know that many
college-level courses, including introductory statistics and many other science and social
science courses, have an intended learning outcome to improve students' ability to use
inferential reasoning .
I am offering a FREE online professional development course that can increase
teachers' confidence and provide many classroom ideas and resources related to
Teaching Statistics Through Inferential Reasoning . The course includes video discussions
with experts such as Chris Franklin, Roger Woodard, Maryann Huey, Doug Tyson, Stephen
Miller, and Kaycie Maddox as well as many classroom videos of students and teachers
engaged in inferential reasoning . Information in the course is accessible and appropriate
for educators in middle school through college-level.
| Visit the course
page ] for more details and to register. Class starts February 5th , but is open until
May 28, 2018 so participants can join when they can with busy professional lives.
See the attached flyer to learn details and distribute to other educators you know.
Consider forming a local team of teachers or faculty to do the course together! 20 hours
of Continuing Education Units provided for completing the course requirements!
Let me know if you have any questions and PLEASE pass along to others!
