ESTEEM Faculty Webinars

The purpose of these webinars is to support faculty in implementing ESTEEM materials. In addition to the two part Foundations in Teaching Statistics Module, two other modules are now available, the Teaching Inferential Reasoning and Teaching Statistical Association Modules (each two parts). Thus far, materials have been implemented at more than 30 universities and colleges across the U.S. by more than 34 faculty in various contexts. Each webinar will have a different foci to support faculty in implementing modules. Whether you need a refresher or want to learn about implementing new materials, take advantage of the opportunities to further develop your professional learning.

Reflecting on Preservice Teachers’ Work in the ESTEEM Modules & Assignments
Tuesday, March 3, 2020
4:00 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. EST
Presenters: Rick Hudson and Heather Barker

Abstract: When teaching mathematics and statistics, it is important for teachers to attend to student thinking and build on students’ conceptions. Similarly, the thinking and reasoning of preservice teachers should be central to the practice of teacher education. This webinar will focus on preservice teachers’ thinking from assignments collected from ESTEEM field test sites and how to support and assess teacher learning from these assignments. A special emphasis will be placed on the two standalone assignments in the ESTEEM materials — the Screencast Assignment and the Task Design Assignment. In addition to discussing how to implement these two assignments, we will review screencasts and tasks created by preservice teachers and discuss the results and implications of research about the standalone assignments.

Implementing the Teaching Statistical Association Module
Thursday, January 30, 2020
4:00 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. EST
Presenters: Stephanie Casey and Rick Hudson

Abstract: In this webinar, we’ll dig into the materials in the Teaching Statistical Association Module from the ESTEEM Project. This module has two parts: Statistical Association of Categorical Variables and Statistical Association of Quantitative Variables. Resources from both parts will be shared, including videos of students constructing graphs of bivariate categorical data and a data investigation in CODAP about vehicles’ fuel efficiency. Our experiences teaching this module to preservice teachers will also be discussed.

Implementing the Foundations in Teaching Statistics and Supporting Inferential Reasoning Modules
Tuesday, November 19, 2019
11:15 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. EST
Presenters: Hollylynne Lee, Nina Bailey, Kristin Lessig, Liza Bondurant

Abstract: After a brief overview of the structure of all 3 ESTEEM modules, several faculty (Nina, Kristin, and Liza) will share their experiences and advice for implementing the ESTEEM modules in different contexts. Each faculty has a different course context and utilized different parts of the Foundations, Inferential Reasoning, and Statistical Association modules. The remainder of the webinar will focus on materials from the Foundations in Teaching Statistics Module and the Teaching Inferential Reasoning Module. We will discuss key updates to the materials made in Summer 2019 and dive deeper into a few select resources and tasks in each module to illustrate how to scaffold teachers’ development in understanding statistics and how to teach it. Several specific resources and tasks will be explored in depth.
