Incorporating Simulation-Based Inference in an Introductory Statistics Course

The use of simulation-based methods in the teaching of statistical inference has received considerable attention in recent years. The objective of this presentation is to share my experience incorporating simulation-based methods of inference in the introductory statistics course at the University of Lethbridge. This change was made for the first time in the 2016/17 academic year. I will discuss motivations for the change, and some of the consequences that arose from the change. I will address available resources, highlight student performance and feedback, as it pertains to the change, and discuss lessons learned for next time.
