Tuesday, January 25th, 20224:00 pm – 4:30 pm ET

Presented by: Eric Vance (University of Colorado Boulder)


This month, we highlight the article Using Team-Based Learning to Teach Data Science by Eric Vance in our Journal of Statistics and Data Science Education webinar series. Team-Based Learning (TBL) is a pedagogical strategy that can help educators teach data science better by flipping the classroom to employ small-group collaborative learning to actively engage students in doing data science. A consequence of this teaching method is helping students achieve the workforce-relevant data science learning goals of effective communication, teamwork, and collaboration. In this webinar, he will describe the essential elements of TBL and answer questions about this appealing pedagogical strategy.
