Title: Current Use of Online and Flipped Pedagogy in Statistics and Biostatistics Courses
Author(s): Todd Schwartz* and Jane Monaco

Keywords: online ; flipped ; inverted ; pedagogy ; statistics education

Online and 'flipped' (or inverted) classrooms are gaining in popularity, including in statistics and biostatistics courses. In these formats, instructors can use prerecorded lectures to deliver content. We report findings about the current use of these formats, based on a sample of instructors who teach at least one statistics/biostatistics course that uses prerecorded lectures. Descriptions of students' level of education, class size, nature of statistics course (e.g., introductory, second course), and the courses' meeting schedules will be provided. We will summarize the nature of the prerecorded lectures used in these course, as well as the technology that is being used. Finally, we will discuss the types of student activities that are being used by these instructors. To our knowledge, meaningful data of this type have not been previously collected from a large cross-section of statistics/biostatistics instructors. Our goal is to address this gap and to provide a comprehensive view of the current state of these pedagogical approaches in statistics/biostatistics.
