Instruction in undergraduate Statistics courses has consistently emphasized the recommendation that students “learn statistics by doing statistics.” Consistent with this practical advice, substantial empirical evidence from the learning science literature supports the application of adaptive and interactive learning pedagogies as specific recommendations for undergraduate Statistics courses. One primary emphasis in this 2023 ACS Workshop will be introducing and demonstrating the adaptive learning processes embedded in the Statistics courseware materials created and supported by the Open Learning Initiative (OLI), a flagship project of the Simon Initiative at Carnegie Mellon University. Another Workshop focus will be on interactive projects and assignments for which timely and substantial instructional feedback is provided to student learners. Both new and experienced Statistics instructors could find beneficial pedagogical solutions and impactful course improvements by adopting these practices for their courses. Potential takeaways from this Workshop include new teaching plans, lab activities, projects, or course discussion materials.
