Title: Videos for Simulating the Statistical Collaborative Experience
Author(s): Amy S Nowacki*

Keywords: collaboration course ; statistical education ; graduate students ; videos

A current emphasis in statistical education is the development of statistical literacy and statistical thinking. Specifically, we are to give students plenty of practice with choosing appropriate questions and techniques and assessing and giving feedback on a students' thought process. These recommendations mirror the objectives of most statistical collaboration courses; however, achieving those objectives can be resource intensive, time consuming and difficult. This motivated the development of a bank of video clinical research scenarios based on the medical literature and my own collaborative experiences as a biostatistician. For each video, a clinical investigator describes in simple terms their research topic, research question and study design inviting the viewer to help with the development of a statistical analysis plan. Thus, these real-world open-ended problems create a unique opportunity to teach, practice and/or assess statistical thinking in a simulated collaborative experience. After viewing a sample video, presented will be examples of how to incorporate this resource into a statistical curriculum and instructions on how to obtain access.
