Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stats
Students dread (or worse) taking stats. It's just not what attracted them to psychology and there's often a genuine fear of learning quantitative methods. To make matters worse, stats courses are too often dry and dreadful leading to the confirmation of students' worst expectations. But stats can be a lot more fun and meaningful to students if we apply the right frame to their course work. Stats wizard Tom Tibbett explains the creative process he's developed to bring Harry Potter into his stats lab to the delight of his students.
