Metacognition and teaching statistics

Metacognition and teaching statistics

Teaching statistics for a diverse crowd of students, enrolled at NMBU to study anything but statistics, is challenging. How can we meet and motivate them better?

Contact: Kathrine Frey Frøslie and Hilde Vinje
Projects: Metacognition – personality-based learning, Digital interdisciplinary teaching methods, Flipped classroom, Project-based statistics

Microbial genomics
