dB-SERC lunch discussion 02/22/2016
Topic: Reflections on the implementation of clickers in large enrollment introductory statistics classes
Discussion leader: Dr. Kehui Chen, statistics and psychiatry
When: Monday, February 22, 2016 from 12 - 1 pm
Where: 321 Allen Hall
During the lunch, Dr. Kehui Chen from the departments of statistics and psychiatry will discuss how a large-enrollment introductory statistics class was transformed using student response systems (clickers).
Dr. Kehui Chen and Dr. Nancy Pfenning (statistics) received a dB-SERC course transformation award to implement clickers in the classroom last semester. The clickers were utilized to conduct surveys and short quizzes throughout the semester to achieve more effective communication between the instructor and students. They were also used for data-generating activities to improve concept learning in statistics sampling and to utilize interactive case studies to help students apply statistical methods to real data analysis. The purpose of the lunch is to reflect on the implementation of the course transformation, discuss results from assessments, and to think about how the transformation could be modified for future courses.
