Preparing Teachers of Statistics: A Course for Graduate Students and Future Teachers


Presented by:

Joan Garfield & Michelle Everson, University of Minnesota

02:00pm - 02:30pm Eastern Standard Time, September 9th, 2008

Abstract

This webinar discusses issues and challenges in preparing teachers of statistics at the secondary and college level. We then provide a case study of a graduate level course taught at the University of Minnesota that focuses on developing excellent teachers of statistics. The course is based on the GAISE guidelines and helps the students develop both knowledge of teaching (pedagogical knowledge) and specific knowledge about teaching statistics (pedagogical content knowledge). Topics, readings, activities, assessments, and discussions are described. In addition, we discuss how the course was transformed from a face-to-face setting to an online environment.
