Introductory Descriptive Statistics: HEC Workshop for Teachers of Statistics December 30, 2013, January 03, 2014

For male and female participants

International Institute of Islamic Economics International Islamic University, Islamabad

About Introductory Descriptive Statistics (IDS) workshop This is a short five day workshop meant for primarily teachers of Introductory Statistics Courses. Students who are planning to teach such courses in the future may also profitably take this course. The workshop is designed to enable students to teach the course “Introductory Descriptive Statistics” (IDS) as well as other statistics courses. Introductory Descriptive Statistics is a course of 10 lectures which has been designed along the principles of the MOOC – Massive Open Online Courses. This means that the course is completely self-contained – it can run without a teacher. However, the goal of the workshop is to provide the expertise as well as the complete course materials to the teacher to enable him or her to teach the course with confidence on his own. Because IDS is based on a unique and newly developed approach, it will provide the teacher and students with deep insights even into the most basic and elementary statistical concepts. Teachers who learn this approach will find that students appreciate an intuitive, comprehensible approach to statistics based on real life examples which they can understand. The standard approach as taught in conventional textbooks is technical and boring, and does not seem applicable to real life problems. The new approach is dynamic and exciting, and we expect that teachers who understand it will be in high demand.

Key features of the new approach The conventional approach to Statistics is to separate the data analysis from the real world aspects. The statisticians’ deals only with the numbers – data generated by the real world, while the field specialist deals with applications of the numbers to reality. Our approach is an integrated approach. We deal simultaneously with the statistical analysis and its interpretation and application to the real world. This makes a tremendous difference in developing and understanding the subject matter of Statistics. Even the simplest and most basic concepts like mean, median and mode cannot be understood outside the context of real world applications. From the Islamic point of view, the statistician cannot isolate himself from the real world consequences of his analysis. If his data analysis leads to the conclusion that taxes should be increased (or decreased), he cannot say that mine is a purely objective analysis, and what policy makers do is their business. He must understand the policy implications of his analysis and take responsibility for them. This requires entirely different approach to the subject. Our primary goal in these lectures is to explain how Islamic

methodology impacts on our understanding of what knowledge is, as well as teaching and learning, in the context of basic statistics.

Who Should Attend? The primary target participants of the workshop are the teachers who intend to teach statistics, particularly Introductory Statistics. Others, who have frequent dealing with data sets, will also find it useful.
