"Setting the Stage for Students' Conceptual Change in Learning Statistics"
with Bob delMas, University of Minnesota; and Marsha Lovett, Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence, Carnegie Mellon University

3:00 to 3:30 pm Eastern time, June 10th, 2008 (Note special time)

There is a large body of research on the mechanisms underlying student learning. In this webinar, we will explore four principles distilled from this research - the role of prior knowledge, how students organize knowledge, meaningful engagement, and goal-directed practice and feedback - and illustrate their application in the teaching of statistics. A more detailed example will be given to show how these principles can be integrated to develop and support our students' conceptual understanding.
