2.10, 3.11 Making experiments awesome – Grant Ritchie & Michelle Dalrymple

In 2015 Grant and Michelle aimed to make their Level 2 and Level 3 Statistics courses as AWESOME as possible.  They tackled this challenge with lots of fun, learning through doing, and encouraging a positive collaborative classroom culture.  Their workshop shared experiences teaching Level 2 & Level 3 Experiments and endeavored to discuss: good experiments to do in class, incorporating the research component and key teaching moments.  They also bragged about their inaugural annual “Experiments Camp”.

Resources: Workshop powerpoint is here. Please note marshmallows were used in this workshop – always give a health and safety briefing with marshmallows (and other edibles).
