Seminars in Mathematics
Who takes Statistics? A look at student composition, 2000-2016

Peter Dillingham

Department of Mathematics and Statistics

Date: Thursday 27 July 2017
Time: 11:00 a.m.
Place: Room 241, 2nd floor, Science III building

In this blended seminar and discussion, we will examine how student data can help inform curriculum development and review, focussing on the Statistics programme as an example. Currently, the Statistics academic staff are reviewing our programme to ensure that we continue to provide a high quality and modern curriculum that meets the needs of students. An important component of this process is to understand whom our students are and what they are interested in, from first-year service teaching through to students majoring in statistics. As academics, we often have a reasonable answer to these questions, but we can be more specific by poring over student data. While not glamorous, this sort of data can help confirm those things we think we know, identify opportunities or risks, and help answer specific questions where we know that we don’t know the answer.
