Title: A graduate student's perspective of a PhD program in statistics education
Authors: Ella Burnham - University of Nebraska- Lincoln (United States) [presenting]
Abstract: I will share my experience as a Statistics PhD student with an emphasis in statistics education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, including the coursework, teaching experiences, and research experiences I have had compared to other graduate students in the program. More specifically, I will discuss the opportunity that I have had to help design and co-teach a large, online non-calculus based introductory statistics course for undergraduate students. Lastly, I will discuss how I conduct research on this course each semester, as well as preliminary results from the first two semesters of implementation.
