Whether you are considering updating an existing statistics course or developing a new one, numerous options exist for delivering the content. Many courses are moving away from traditional classroom lecturing. While some courses are taught completely online, debate surrounding the effectiveness of this format continues. Meanwhile, gaining in popularity are "hybrid" or "flipped" formats, in which students are expected to view pre-recorded lectures and class-time is devoted to active learning strategies and hands-on practice. This roundtable will provide an opportunity to discuss practical considerations, best practices, and lessons learned in teaching statistics as technology, online resources, and student expectations continue to evolve. Topics include: What technologies (desktop recording software, grading options, and classroom technology) are effective? Considerations include ease of use, compatibility, and cost. What existing resources are helpful and available? What happens when students or administrators are reluctant to embrace an innovative classroom model? What is the time commitment for developing or updating a course format?
