William Sundstrom, professor of economics, presents "Adventures in Teaching and Learning Data Analysis with R" -- a lunchtime seminar looking at the program and Sunstrom's experience in teaching it at the undergraduate level.
What is R? Why should faculty use R in teaching stats instead of Excel, SPSS, Stata, and so on? What are the advantages and challenges of R in the classroom? How R works in a class such as Econ 41/42 (Data Analysis and Econometrics). How will R impact our teaching in the future?
