Session Abstract

Much current statistical education at the post-secondary level focuses on methods of data analysis and the use of statistical packages. Subject matter experts often teach research methods to upper undergraduates and beginning postgraduate students but their emphasis is less on the statistical validity of study designs as on their practicalities. The aim of this session is to bring together the two aspects into an integrated approach. The papers in this session will show how the integrated approach can be used in teaching undergraduates or postgraduates, for experimental or survey or observational study designs.
