Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is an interesting approach featuring a "design for an upper-level undergraduate statistics course structured around data rather than methods. The course is designed around curated datasets to reflect real-world data science practice and engages students in experiential and peer learning using (a) data science competition platform." There's detailed discussion of the course, first launched at Harvard in 2014, the data competition tool, Kaggle, and of student responses to the process. But note: "the  course  requires  an  instructor  with  a  broad  base  of  knowledge in statistical models, as well as experience applying these methods to real data."
