Event: Teacher Professional Development Data Analysis Workshop
Date: Monday 25 June 2018
Where: Collaboration Studio, Building H2.G.02, USC Sunshine Coast
Across the new suite of Science General Senior Syllabuses for implementation in 2019, there is greater emphasis for students to improve their scientific numeracy through proficiency in basic data analysis and data interpretation. These skills are fundamental to enhancing creative and critical thinking in our next generation of STEM practitioners.
The Faculty of Science at The University of Queensland, in collaboration with the University of the Sunshine Coast, will conduct a PD session dedicated to addressing content deficits in basic data analysis, with a focus on biological data. The methods of statistical analyses demonstrated in this session, is applicable to data collected from practicals in physics, chemistry, mathematics, and marine science. It will be shown how free software and phone applications can facilitate more efficient data collection and data analysis. Finally, we will identify common mistakes in data analyses and data interpretation made in current Extended Experimental Investigations.
You will benefit most from this session if you bring along your Smartphones (Android only) and/or laptops (Windows or Mac, with an updated version of Microsoft Excel 2013 or more recent). We will require attendees who choose to bring along their laptops for this session to download an Application into their computers in advance (We will provide instructions once registrations are confirmed).
