Faculty and instructors, have you been asking yourself this question:
“Really? It’s time to teach [insert class name] again? How can I spice that up?”
Why not use data! Students learn quantitative skills, you have an easy way of adding interest to the topic that’s feeling a little tired – it’s a win-win! 🙂
Check out this webinar, “Bringing Data into the Classroom with ICPSR,” on Tuesday, April 12 at Noon – register here!
The webinar will demonstrate the data tools, content resources, and opportunities ICPSR, the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research data repository, has for exposing undergraduate students to data. The ideas included will touch on topics from deviance to sampling and voting behavior to operationalization of variables.
Don’t have time for the webinar but wondering if there are other resources for helping you use ICPSR data for teaching? Go to the ICPSR database and then click on the “Teaching & Learning with ICPSR” orange button to explore the Data-Driven Learning Guides, the Exercise Modules, and the Crosstab Assignment Builder.
