Project Summary

StatPREP will foster the widespread use of data-centered methods and pedagogies in introductory statistics courses. This will in turn enhance the preparation of students to meet the demands of a data-driven workplace and to use the newly available resources in our data-centric world. StatPREP will work directly with college-level instructors, both online and in community-based workshops, to develop the understanding and skills needed to work and teach with modern data.

StatPREP will initiate community transformation focused on modernizing undergraduate statistics education. This project will offer an extended professional development program for mathematics faculty, particularly at two-year institutions, who teach introductory statistics, it will establish regional communities of practice to support these instructors, and it will provide them a national online support network with statistics education experts. This project also contributes to the goal to “improve STEM learning and learning environments by investigating the effectiveness of this professional development model as a catalyst for community transformation. The combined resources and reach of the MAA, ASA, and AMATYC will ensure the sustainability of StatPREP and the availability of this program to the largest possible audience.
