In statistics courses like Psychology 401/509, some students tend to focus on recording exactly what the instructor says. The problem with this is that, in focusing on the minutiae of the material, these students lose the bigger picture, the logic of what is being taught. I want to use lecture-capture technology to address pedagogical and logistical issues with my statistics course(s). By allowing students to replay lectures as podcasts or streaming content, they will be able to concentrate on the broader issues during lecture, while focusing later on the more minute aspects of the material. Just as important, perhaps, is the fact that I will be able to create “how-to” videos in using statistical software such as SPSS. To enact this plan in Fall 2012, I propose to purchase a tablet PC, an external microphone, and lecture-capture software.
