StatSpace is an open repository of modular resources for use in teaching introductory statistics. StatSpace brings together open, vetted and adaptable resources including animations, web visualizations, activities and questions. Many resources use active learning techniques and some also provide suggestions for use including teaching pitfalls and how students use and misuse resources. Resources can be used individually or in groups and can be used in lecture, in labs, as pre-learning tools or for student review.
StatSpace grew out of the University of British Columbia Statistics Department’s goal of providing more structure in cross-campus introductory statistics education. It is the result of a cross-campus collaboration called the Flexible Learning in Statistics (FLIS) project. The FLIS team was composed of experienced statistics instructors with homes in five different departments in three different faculties. These instructors have student audiences ranging from second-year statistics majors to third-year political science majors to first-year medical students. The project not only received central UBC funding, but also direct funding from the deans of three faculties, Medicine, Science and Arts, and the Statistical Society of Canada.
