Consultation, Communication, and Collaboration: A project course to engage statistics students in the three C's

Tuesday, September 25th, 20122:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Presented by: Alison Gibbs, University of Toronto


In this webinar I'll give a nuts-and-bolts description of a fourth year capstone activity for students in statistics programs at the University of Toronto. The statistics students join research students from other disciplines as collaborators. I'll describe what takes place including the nature of the projects and the support provided, how we've structured the course and are evaluating the projects, who are the members of the six distinct groups of individuals at the university who are benefitting from the experience, and why we started the course and organized it the way we did.
