W10: Modules for Infusing Data Science into the Statistics Curriculum

With Adam Loy (Lawrence University)


This workshop is will explore ways to incorporate data-scientific topics into existing statistics courses, especially at the introductory level. The modules allow for the inclusion of introductory tutorials and lab activities into courses for students with limited technical backgrounds. Participants will work through class-tested tutorials and lab activities. Key topics will include data wrangling and statistical graphics. The workshop will close with a discussion related to how these materials have been used in existing courses and an overview of the supporting materials. Basic knowledge of R will be valuable, but not required.
