Statistics is like detective work: What do the data say? And how much confidence can you have in the inferences drawn from them? So, just like solving mysteries, statistics can be a lot of fun! Learning statistics, however, can be challenging – unless you have the technological tools that allow you to do the detective work. Our statistics courses have benefitted tremendously from the instructional strategies and technology support provided by the Learning Design & Technology team, engaging our students as active learners. The Statistics instructors featured here illustrate that good teachers can be even better ones, and that their efforts are rewarded through positively measured outcomes of student success. We look forward to our continued collaborations with Learning Design & Technology and to seeing more students actively engaged in our classes.
