Rethinking Computing and Statistics Instruction with Vocareum and Gradescope
November 22, 2019
I will share ongoing efforts to retool CBE 20258 Numerical and Statistical Analysis (required) to provide a scaffolding for all chemical engineering undergraduates to develop core competencies in computing, applied statistics, and mathematical modeling. Key aspects of the course redesign include i) modernizing content including the adoption of the Python programming language and Jupyter notebooks, ii) moving initial exposure to outside of the classroom, and iii) incorporating active learning in all class sessions. I will share how classroom technologies Vocareum and Gradescope have been critical to the success of the redesign by reducing grading time, giving students fast feedback, and enabling regular accountability.
