Abstract

In statistical programming workshops, communication has a different dynamic to other classroombased statistics courses. Many of the traditional methods of communication (e.g. verbal, via a projector or printed notes) are insufficient for communication of the programming language. For example, learners may need to describe their exercise solution or a programming error to the class. To address this problem, the Centre for Applied Statistics Courses (CASC) at University College London (UCL) developed a platform for code sharing in workshops for R and Stata programming. On this platform, learners are provided with a live version of the teachers’ code and learners can submit sections of their own code for group discussion. We present anonymous feedback and web analytics to show how the platform is used in practice.
