As many of you already know, I am leaving Notre Dame to become the provost at Marquette University in a couple of months. I am really excited to get started there, but I have a couple of things to finish up here on the home front as well. One of them is that I will be teaching Notre Dame’s first “MOOC”, which is supposed to be a super fun introduction to statistics. Below is the trailer for the course, which I’m sure you’ll find entertaining. It completely embodies my approach to teaching this course…You’ll have to decided, after watching it, if (a) Notre Dame will be glad to see me go, (b) anyone will learn anything from the course, or (c) if I will win an online-learning-Oscar (I’d call it a MOOCie) in the category of best overacting!
Oh, and you can sign up here if you want to actually take it!
