|Title||Curriculum Planning for Statistics|
Funding was requested to support a cross-faculty curriculum development process that would result in a comprehensive project plan and proposal to be submitted in a future FL/TLEF funding cycle. This was a collaborative initiative involving the Faculties of Science, Arts, and Applied Science. The resulting FL project plan proposed the development, adaptation, and use of instructional resources that would address conceptually challenging topics in introductory statistics. The resources were to be open, adaptable, consistent in look and feel, and grounded in existing research on learning and statistics. The plan also proposed the development, testing and documentation of a model for cross-faculty partnership to support introductory statistics instruction, and a resulting increase in UBC’s faculty-level capacity for identifying, evaluating, adapting and/or developing future statistics learning resources. The proposed learning resources were to encompass a collection of modular, on-line content including: animations, mini-lecture screen-capture videos or pencasts, online homework and quizzes, individualized online experiments, a repository of interesting data sets, and in-class active learning (clicker questions and activities).
