Teaching Strategies for Undergraduate Statistics in the Wildlife Sciences

Do you teach statistics, analysis of populations, or other quantitative courses aimed at reaching wildlife biologists? The BWG is sponsoring a discussion group at this years 25th annual 2018 TWS meeting in Cleveland, “Quantitative Teachers: Teaching Strategies for Undergraduate Statistics in the Wildlife Sciences”.


Time and Place: 10/8/2018, 3:20-5:00pm, CC, Room 1; check schedule for changes.


Come to discuss strategies for teaching quantitative courses. Absolutely everyone is welcome (not just current teachers/lecturers, or BWG members). The structure of the meeting will be an informal roundtable discussion. The focus will be on undergraduate education, but we hope to cover graduate and professional statistical education in wildlife science at future meetings. We will follow up later this summer or early fall with a google form to gauge interest in potential discussion topics. If you plan on attending and have suggestions for discussion topics, please send them to either Brian Gerber (bgerber@uri.edu) or John Fieberg (jfieberg@umn.edu).


Come share and discuss your thoughts, opinions, and experiences so that we may all be more effective at moving the quantitative skill sets of the next generation of wildlife biologists!
