Event description

Description

ECON1310 is a large (500+ student) course that explores basic statistical concepts and techniques that are useful in business and economic contexts. The course covers descriptive statistics, probability, theoretical distributions, inferential statistics (confidence intervals and hypothesis testing) and simple linear regression.

Carl Sherwood is a lecturer in the School of Economics who has received numerous teaching awards, including an Australian National Award for Teaching Excellence (2017), UQ Award for Teaching Excellence (2015) and an Australian National Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning (2013). He is also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK). With a background as a civil engineer, an MBA and a Graduate Certificate in Higher Education from UQ, Carl aims to inspire students to learn through interactive, contextualised teaching that motivates students to understand the linkages between theory and real world situations. Students experience interactive lectures, tutorials, peer-assisted study sessions and a range of online materials (including videos and quizzes) to support their learning.
