What is statsTeachR?
statsTeachR is an open-access, online repository of modular lesson plans, a.k.a. "modules", for teaching statistics using R at the undergraduate and graduate level. Each module focuses on teaching a specific statistical concept. The modules range from introductory lessons in statistics and statistical computing to more advanced topics in statistics and biostatistics. We are developing plans to create a peer-review process for some of the modules submitted to statsTeachR.
What statsTeachR offers
A unifying goal for all statsTeachR modules is to facilitate the use of hands-on exercises in statistical computing with R to teach fundamental concepts in statistics. All modules are made available via a Creative Commons license. Therefore, everyone is encouraged to use, modify, and update existing modules: with appropriate attribution, of course.
