Prof Awarded for Online Teaching

Dr. Chris Aberson, an associate professor of psychology at HSU, and his colleagues from the Claremont Graduate University, were awarded the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT) Exemplary Online Learning Resources Award.

The MERLOT award program recognizes both outstanding teaching and learning materials and the authors of these resources.

As a founding member of the Web Interface for Statistics Education (WISE) project, Dr. Aberson worked to develop several Internet-based tutorials for the teaching and learning of core statistical topics. The award particularly recognizes the project’s widely-used Central Limit Theorem tutorial, which is only the second statistics teaching resource honored by MERLOT.

Members of the WISE team will showcase the award-winning contribution at the MERLOT International Conference in August.
