Simulating at Serenbe III

Teaching Introductory Statistics with Simulation-Based Inference

July 5-7, 2017


Workshop Details

The residential workshop will provide direct experience with hands-on activities designed to introduce students to fundamental concepts of inference using randomization-based methods. The learning activities involve using freely available applets (ISI and Statkey) and software (Fathom) to explore concepts and analyze real data from genuine research studies. The presenters will also offer implementation and assessment suggestions during these activity-based sessions and discussion sessions based on the experiences of the presenters with randomization-based curricula in their own classrooms. Our goal is to help you make elementary statistical concepts more understandable, meaningful and relevant for your students.

The Inn at Serenbe is nestled in the rolling countryside on the southern edge of Atlanta. The 900 acres include preserved forestland, wildflower meadows, 15 miles of trails that go by two waterfalls and a large granite outcropping, an animal village, swings and rocking chairs, two pools and a cabana, two hot tubs, croquet lawn, and endless opportunities for relaxing and connecting with nature. Meals will be at The Farmhouse at Serenbe, one of Atlanta's original farm-to-table restaurants, which serves regional cuisine using locally grown, organic ingredients from the restaurant's own garden as well as from Serenbe Farms and other area producers.
