Implementing version control with Git as a learning objective in statistics courses

01/07/2020 ∙ by Matthew D. Beckman, et al. ∙ 0

Version control is an essential element of a reproducible workflow that deserves due consideration among the learning objectives of statistics courses. This paper describes experiences and implementation decisions of four contributing faculty who are teaching different courses at a variety of institutions. Each of these faculty have set version control as a learning objective and successfully integrated teaching Git into one or more statistics courses. The various approaches described in the paper span different implementation strategies to suit student background, course type, software choices, and assessment practices. By presenting a wide range of approaches to teaching Git, the paper aims to serve as a resource for statistics instructors teaching courses at any level within an undergraduate or graduate curriculum.
