ST311 is an introductory statistics course at N.C. State that is similar MAT 152. The majority of the sections of ST311 are taught in a hybrid format in which two hours per week of content online and the students meet face-to-face with an instructor for one hour per week. Recently, the university has started to emphasize critical and creative thinking (https://think.dasa.ncsu.edu/intellectual-standards-of-critical-and-creative-thinking/). We have used the hybrid format of ST311 to emphasize the critical thinking skills. Students learn basic facts and concepts during the online component of the course. Then during the face-to-face session of the class we spend time on how to answer critical thinking questions. During this presentation we will discuss the structure of the course and present example questions and a rubric we use to help student develop critical thinking.
