BENEFIT FOR FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY
Join ICPSR for a webinar on Apr 12, 2016 at 12:00 PM EDT.
"Really? It's time to teach ______ 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 you would rather not teach -- it's a win-win!
This Webinar will demonstrate the data tools, content resources, and opportunities ICPSR 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.
This webinar is free and open to the public. Please share this invitation!
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
