Senior Lecturer Michelle Everson on Online Discussions, News-Based Activities, and the Journal of Statistics Education

"I feel I get to know each student's voice more in the online course because I get to witness how he or she talks through different concepts and ideas and I get to witness how that changes over the course of the semester."

The latest issue of the Journal of Statistics Education features Allan Rossman's interview [PDF] with our very own Senior Lecturer, Michelle Everson! Michelle discusses her path to teaching and her growth as an online teacher and member of the statistics education community, and her ideas for the future direction of the Journal of Statistics Education as she prepares to take on the mantle of head editor.

How can we engage students with news stories? Can online environments help shy students flourish? What are ways that statistics educators can collaborate more? Michelle shares her honest and thoughtful insights from her years of award-winning teaching and designing courses.
