NYU London is currently recruiting for a part-time lecturer to teach Statistics for Business Control with Regression/Forecasting Models, two companion courses sponsored by the Stern School of Business at NYU.Teaching commences in the autumn term (Sept-Dec 2021).
Statistics for Business Control:
Topics covered will include:
Basic Concepts of Probability
Discrete Probability Distributions including the Binomial and Poisson Distributions
Continuous Distributions and the Normal Distributions
The Central Limit Theorem
Statistical Inference and Estimation including estimation of means and proportions and sample size determination for both means and proportions
Tests of Hypothesis concepts
Tests of Hypothesis examples: one and two sample T tests and Tests for a proportion.
Expectation of Hours:
4 credits; total contact hours = 35 hours. The semester is 15 weeks (14 weeks of teaching plus an exam week) and there are 2.5 hours of classroom instruction each week offered across 2 days (75 min. each). In addition to the time required for course preparation, classroom instruction, and marking, the instructor is required to hold a minimum of one set 60-minute "office hour" at NYU London per week, during which time she or he will be available to meet with students.
Regression Analysis and Forecasting
This course will introduce students to the ideas of correlation and to the powerful statistical techniques of simple and multiple linear regression. Linear regression is a fundamental statistical technique used in business, economics and all social sciences or understanding relationships among variables and for forecasting observed outcomes. Techniques of linear regression will be illustrated with various real world examples.
Expectation of Hours:
2 credits; total contact hours = 17.5 hours. The semester is 15 weeks (14 weeks of teaching plus an exam week) and there are 75 minutes of classroom instruction each week. In addition to the time required for course preparation, classroom instruction, and marking, the instructor is required to hold a minimum of one set 60-minute "office hour" at NYU London per week, during which time she or he will be available to meet with students.
Instructors are encouraged to use a variety of pedagogical techniques. This typically includes a combination of lecture- and discussion-based class sessions, as well as the use of student activities, such as debate exercises, flipped classroom environments, and experimental simulations of economic coordination problems.
In addition to required midterms and final exams, instructors may use a variety of assignments to assess student comprehension of the course material. These may include online weekly homework, writing assignments, short student presentations and in-class multiple-choice quizzes. Instructors may select the mix that is more appropriate to their teaching methodology.
Instructors should be prepared to teach in-person and simultaneously to be prepared for remote instruction should circumstances require it. NYU uses Zoom as its primary platform for remote instruction.
