That's my feeling too in an ideal world. I think sometimes the fact that the tech is there makes us make use of it willy nilly without thing how to use it to ENHANCE learning.

Had these videos pointed out to me the other day. Particularly like the videos on What does a statistician do? and About the p-value. Great teaching resource (by Australian Centre for Health Services Innovation)
These videos are designed to give a quick overview about research techniques. We are continually building the content of this library and are very keen to add videos on topics that interest and assist...

Story
Tagline
Educator to the often reluctant stats student. Passionate about the usefulness of Statistics in today's digital world.
Introduction

My primary professional focus is on achieving quality teaching and learning outcomes for and with a variety of tertiary students. I specialise in engaging and mentoring first year students in a range of faculties with their initial studies of statistics, seeking to make it interesting, useful and less intimidating as a subject area. I also have a passion for helping students become fluent in the language they need to effectively communicate their science. I seek to make necessary core subjects accessible to students, relevant to their chosen degree and ultimately develop marketable generic job skills within my students. I utilise the best of current technological resources in my teaching with an aim of optimising student engagement and ensuring equity and quality for isolated and distance students.

I enjoy engaging with others in research, mainly in mentoring others in statistical analysis of larger multivariate data sets. This work occurs at all levels, with my fellow academics, students at honours, masters and doctorate level and with administrative staff. I am a problem solver; becoming fascinated with helping to analyse and solve the wide variety of fascinating scenarios brought to me for assistance in analysis by my colleagues.
