Session Description
Gao discusses the teaching of a ten-week introductory statistics course that is delivered entirely online and the manner in which it promotes a combination of student-centered learning and teacher-centered evaluation. Students enrolled in this class are experienced professionals in all industries who are working towards their Ph.D degrees. This course is one of courses which they are required to take in order to fulfill the requirements of the program. The course is intended to equip students with the skills enabling them to read and understand statistical information in research literature relevant to research problems and issues. This paper is advocating quality assurance is key for the development and delivery of online courses/learning environments, and promotes the combination of the two approaches of student-centered learning with teacher-centered evaluation as being on two ends of a teaching philosophy continuum.
