Educational Philosophy: The instructor's philosophy is based on constructivist view of learning which states that students construct their perception of reality. The Instructor provides guidance like lectures, assignments and tutoring but learning task is placed entirely on student's shoulders. Full use of computer technology is one of the ways the instructor guides students.
The intent is to introduce students to many of the important concepts and procedures they are likely to need in order to (1) evaluate such daily inputs as organizational reports, newspaper articles, radio and television commentaries, (2) improve their ability to make better decisions over a wide range of topics, and (3) improve their ability to measure and cope with changing conditions both at home and on the job. The emphasis will be placed on explaining statistical procedures and interpreting the resulting conclusions
