dB-SERC lunch discussion
When: Monday, August 15 from 12 - 1 pm
Where: 321 Allen Hall

During the lunch discussion, Dr. Nancy Pfenning (statistics) and PhD student Brian Leventhal (education) will discuss the design of a project for which they received a dB-SERC course transformation award. They propose a transformation of assessment materials in Statistics 1000 to consolidate and enhance existing materials in order to ensure fair and appropriate content for all instructors, especially those who are newly hired. These include assignments, projects that require use of statistical software, quizzes, midterms, and finals. They propose to begin with a thorough examination of existing assessment materials developed by various faculty to date. Consensus will be reached between the co-directors, incorporating input from full-time statistics faculty members who have experience in teaching Stat 1000, to organize a coherent collection of materials that make it possible for a less experienced lecturer to “hit the ground running” with high-quality assessment tools that are consistent with the statistics department’s goals for instruction in that course. These materials will serve as a valuable resource in the future, especially to new instructors. Rationale and assessments of the proposed transformation will be discussed. The purpose of the discussion is to discuss the implementation and assessment of the project and receive feedback from faculty members.
