the Progressive Statistical Education Program
The Progressive Statistical Education Program (PSEP) is a nationally funded ‘Good Practice’ initiative aimed at improving the delivery of social science education within the university. The program focuses on building statistical and computer literacy in students studying social sciences and is led by Professor Masago Fujiwara. Such skills are invaluable in this field, as empirical evidence underpins most decision making. The knowledge gained by students will be widely applicable across a diverse range of professions and expand their employment possibilities.
program structure
The PSEP includes three components:
Curriculum restructure
The existing university curriculum regarding computer and statistical literacy will be restructured, with subjects being grouped into three progressive levels:
(1) Basic computer literacy and data bases
(2) Statistical analysis and data-mining
(3) Social survey subjects (basic and advanced)
Textbook development
To reflect the restructure, new textbooks will be formulated for all subjects and will be presented in competency-based modules. Also, students will learn practical statistical skills using the Moodle e-learning system, including mathematical problem solving and socio-economic data analysis. The new textbooks and Moodle software will also benefit lecturers, who will be able to monitor students’ learning progress online.
Learning assistance
Students will receive support from Teaching Assistants during lessons if they are having difficulty keeping up. If required, supplementary learning assistance will also be provided outside of lessons for general issues related to their study.
Outcomes
The PSEP will improve the analytical skills of students as well as the quality of their research projects. It will also improve communication between students and lecturers. It is expected that students who complete the suite of subjects will obtain advanced statistical skills and will be able to seek formal qualification as a Social Surveyor, accredited by the Japanese Association for Social Research.
