Abstract

The standard approach to teaching statistics is teacher-centered in which the lecturer tries to impose his knowledge onto the students. This method forces a particular learning style and pace on students, and students often fail to make the connection of when various statistical methods are appropriate. Here we discuss a statistics course for non-specialist postgraduate students at Lancaster University that uses a problem-based learning approach.
