SOCR Events - SOCR CAUSEway 2007 Workshop

Title: Pedagogical Utilization of SOCR and CAUSEweb Resources in Probability and Statistics Courses

Workshop Summary and Goals

The 2007 joint SOCR/CAUSEway continuing education workshop aims at demonstrating the functionality, utilization and assessment of the current UCLA, SOCR and CAUSEweb resources. This workshop will be of most value to AP teachers and college instructors of probability and statistics classes who have interests in exploring novel IT-based approaches for enhancing statistics education. The workshop will provide an interactive forum for exchange of ideas and recommendations for strategies to integrate computers, modern pedagogical approaches, the Internet and new student assessment techniques.
