Statistical Consulting Centre short courses

Each year I teach intensive short courses open to anyone. Statistics for research workers is offered every year.  You can find out more about Statistical Consulting Centre courses here.

The Statistical Consulting Centre also offers tailored short courses; I have collaborated on many of these.

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 (MAST90027).

I collaborated with Ian Gordon developed and coordinate two subjects in the Masters of Applied Analytics.  These are the foundation subject, Critical thinking with analytics (MAST91030) and Foundations of analytics (MAST90135).

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.
