The Privilege Project
Dr. Gibson-Dee presented on her course curriculum designed to “bring statistics to life… and for students to come to [her] class.” The project spanned for the entire semester with students writing about, surveying, and analyzing their own and societal privilege. The project made her students intrigued and excited about statistics. They wanted to know how this kind of change in data is possible. Her students asked questions about the effects of the context of a survey such as differences in location, culture and background. They learned about statistical hypothesis testing and that the way in which surveys and questions are constructed can affect answers.
