Using Jupyter notebooks with R in the classroom

When teaching statistics to non-programmers, the challenges of programming in R often exceed the challenge presented by new statistics concepts. This presentation will discuss a recent paper comparing methods for teaching programming (Jacobs, Gorman, Rees, and Craig, 2016), including the use of Jupyter notebooks. Jupyter notebooks are run in a server-client Notebook Application that allows editing and running Jupyter notebooks in a web browser. The audience will be able to execute a live Jupyter notebook running R code, demonstrating the most successful approach in their paper.
