Incorporating computer simulations and visualizations into your teaching

Tuesday, January 12th, 20102:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Presented by: Marsha Lovett, Carnegie Mellon University


In Statistics as in many disciplines, students need to learn about complex concepts and dynamically changing processes. How can instructors help their students begin to "see" these complex topics the way experts do, and are there tools that can help? In this webinar, I will review key findings on how computer visualizations and simulations can best support student learning and then take those findings to generate effective strategies for teaching with simulations and visualizations.
