Teaching an Undergraduate Bayesian Statistics Course
Monday, December 11, 2017 - 3:30pm
In this talk, I want to talk about the challenges in teaching an undergraduate level Bayesian statistics course. I will share my experience and thoughts on how to work out a fine balance between the theory and methods, computation, and applications in such a course. I will also share my experiments in multimedia course delivery. Additionally, I will emphasize the importance of fostering an engaging and accountable learning community for such a course, and a few approaches to making it happen. In the end, I will present a selection of my projects grown in and beyond an undergraduate level Bayesian statistics course.
