What is SILC? SILC is the Statistics Instructors Learning Circle, an instructor group open to any instructor at UAlbany who teaches statistics (in a statistics course or in one sequence of a course). SILC was formed in response to instructors who came to ITLAL looking for disciplinary specific teaching support. SILC meets 3-4 times a semester: our one hour meetings focus on a particular teaching challenge. We share teaching approaches which require low effort from the instructor but which have a high impact on student learning; this is followed by lively discussion among attendees. The resources and ideas shared at SILC meetings then become part of a Statistics Instructors Resource Share (SIRS). SILC meetings and SIRS can be found on a dedicated OneDrive site. Below, you will find information about joining SILC. ITLAL would love to have you be part of this community.
