Here is a video recording of my talk from useR! 2016 on teaching R. It’s nominally about teaching a lot of students in an intensive format, but I think almost everything translates to traditional classes. If for whatever reason this video isn’t working out for you, here is the source.
This talk was just one in a great session. I’d highly recommend:
- Colin Rundel on integrating software development practices into R instruction
- Mine Cetinkaya-Rundel on her undergraduate data science course
- Amelia McNamara on her efforts to get R instruction into high school classrooms
- Andee Kaplan the intRo platform for teaching R
