Teaching Quantitative Methods in Social Science seminar27-Oct-10Royal Statistical Society, London

This workshop style meeting takes advantage of the visit to the UK by Professor Chris Wild from the University of Auckland and colleagues who have undertaken pathbreaking work in using visual methods to teaching key statistical concepts to new learners.

Chris will be joined by colleagues from Lancaster Postgraduate Statistics Centre and the Economic and Social Data Service who will showcase some of the web resources available to help in teaching Quantitative Methods (QM), and the challenge of developing statistical literacy in students. There will also be a presentation on the forthcoming ESRC web portal for QM teaching. ESRC’s new Chief Executive, Professor Paul Boyle, will start the day off with a review of ESRC’s efforts in QM.
