Regardless of whether your course is face-to-face, online-only, or blended, WRDS is dedicated to supporting the learning experience for your students. WRDS provides resources for teaching that enable students to use data interactively in order to make real-world connections. By contacting your institution's WRDS representative you can easily set up a class account so your students can download data for course assignments. Some examples of how WRDS data can be used to help support instruction are to:
- Create case studies and simulations
- Perform regression analysis
- Solve optimization problems
- Make future predictions based on past behavior
We took note of professors using WRDS data in the classroom, and specifically designed a set of visually compelling tools to address this need. These tools can be used as core components of your curriculum, for self-guided lessons or assignments, or for classroom demonstrations.
