Doing it Digitally - How Online Delivery can Improve Statistics Teaching - Helen Williams (University of Nottingham)
The PSA Teaching and Learning Network has launched its second webinar series 'Teaching Politics and Online: Design Matters'. This series has been recorded and relevant information and resources can be found here.
For decades, students have learned statistical analysis in computer labs, with a demonstrator at the front of the room working through each click of a process, then circulating to answer questions. This has always been challenging because of the different speeds at which students learn and the added complications of catching up late arrivals and computers malfunctioning. But there is a better way! While Helen Williams began teaching statistical analysis through blended learning out of resource-driven necessity, she has since become convinced that this is actually a much better way of teaching statistics. This session reflects on her approach, some of the lessons learned, and some tips and tricks to keep in mind when preparing materials for the first time for online delivery.
This webinar was delivered live Tuesday 18th August (3-4pm).
This webinar series is produced in partnership with the British International Studies Association (BISA).
