Bayesian statistical methods are becoming increasingly popular in a wide variety of modern applications. This workshop provides resources and support for statistics educators to incorporate aspects of Bayesian statistics in their teaching. Through a series of detailed classroom-ready examples and hands-on activities, including exercises in R, participants will learn how to introduce Bayesian ideas into existing statistics courses at each of the introductory, intermediate, and advanced undergraduate levels. No previous experience with Bayesian statistics is necessary.
