Title: Teaching a Large, Project-Based Statistical Consulting Class
Author(s): Emily Griffith*
Companies: NC State University
Keywords: Consulting ; Education ; Course Design

Statistical consulting classes are a great way for graduate students learn soft skills and data sense by working with clients on real data problems in a supervised setting. Programs often teach these skills in small, discussion-based courses. As many universities are currently experiencing increases in enrollment and decreases in budget, keeping these classes small may become impractical. I will discuss how Statistical Practice, a graduate-level consulting course at North Carolina State University, has been designed to rise to the challenge of larger class sizes.
