What’s the best way to teach methods and statistics?

No easy answer, but I’m co-author on a new paper that has some hints (10.1177/0098628315573139). Well, actually, it’s just a summary of some assessment data my department has been collecting to help evaluate an integrated and inquiry-based approach to teaching methods and stats. We provide lots of opportunities for apprenticeship, with student completing independent correlational and experimental projects across a 2-semester sequence. Currently, we’re using Nolan & Heinzen as a stats text, but I’m hoping that we’ll be using Cumming & Calin-Jageman by 2017.
