If there is one guest I don’t need to introduce, it’s mister Andrew Gelman. So… I won’t! I will refer you back to his two previous appearances on the show though, because learning from Andrew is always a pleasure. So go ahead and listen to episodes 20 and 27.
In this episode, Andrew and I discuss his new book, Active Statistics, which focuses on teaching and learning statistics through active student participation. Like this episode, the book is divided into three parts: 1) The ideas of statistics, regression, and causal inference; 2) The value of storytelling to make statistical concepts more relatable and interesting; 3) The importance of teaching statistics in an active learning environment, where students are engaged in problem-solving and discussion.
And Andrew is so active and knowledgeable that we of course touched on a variety of other topics — but for that, you’ll have to listen ;)
