Then let them write their own textbook… new

Lars Thomsen’s (Christ’s College) talk reported the findings of his inquiry into how students’ key competencies can be developed when they are engaged in a collaborative project in which they write their own statistics textbook, and how these findings have informed his teaching since. Lar’s starting point was the question, how the use of students’ laptops, beyond word processing and iNZight, can truly transform teaching and learning in statistics. While the approach was challenging for both students and teacher, Lars found it worthwhile and now uses elements of this project in his mainstream classes and throughout the maths and stats department.
