Postgraduate teaching workshops l.jpg

One-day workshops - free of charge University

Offered nationally – range of dates

Postgraduate Teaching Workshops

‘I think every student who has to demonstrate should attend a workshop like this.’

Network funded resources l.jpg
Network Funded Resources University

  • E-learning Modules (Dave Woods – Southampton)

    • Design of experiments

    • Modern regression methods

Network funded resources12 l.jpg

R and rpanel l.jpg
R and Rpanel University

  • The rpanel package provides a set of simple interactive controls for R functions which are particularly useful in creating dynamic graphics

  • R-books: Interactive course-notes/text books which both animate key concepts and also provide learner feed-back.

Model choice l.jpg
Model Choice University

  • Model Choice is a system that presents a graded series of scenarios to students, at a level appropriate to their current learning, and challenges them to choose from a list the probability distribution that should be used to model the outcome of the stochastic experiment being described.
