University of Melbourne subjects

Ian Gordon and I teach an introductory statistical methods subject for post-graduate  students at the University of Melbourne; this is also called Statistics for research workers. The subject code is MAST90007.   I also assist with a post-graduate subject on consulting and applied statistics – The practice of statistics and data science (MAST90027).

I collaborated with Ian Gordon to develop two subjects in the Masters of Data Applied Analytics.  These are the foundation subject, Critical thinking with analytics (MAST91030) and Foundations of analytics (MAST90135). Ian and I co-ordinate these subjects.

I teach Quantitative Methods (MULT90054) in the Faculty of Arts.

Statistical literacy subjects 

I collaborated on the development of innovative subjects in statistical literacy at the University of Melbourne.

  • Critical thinking with data is a University of Melbourne breadth subject available to all first  year students. It teaches students to become critical users of data-based  evidence. You can find out more here.
  • Thinking scientifically is an online breadth subject for second year science students, which includes a substantial component about Thinking with data.
  • Data fundamentals is a free online series offered to University of Melbourne students as part of the Employment Fundamentals initiative.  It teaches the fundamentals of statistical literacy. It was developed in collaboration with Dr. Kim-Anh Lê Cao.
