Experience of teaching after a long gapYesterday and today I had to teach a batch of students. They were all research scholars working for their Ph.D. Their subjects were not all the same. There were specialists in Marine Biology, Microbiology, Biotechnology, atmospheric sciences, fisheries, algology, etc. All these scholars have a common problem. Studying Statistics for the analysis of their data. Of course the analysis is to be done using the Software 'R' (Open Software). So before studying that they are being taught the basics of Statistics by me.Perhaps one or more days may be needed to complete it.
For me it is in a way rejuvenating, since I have not been doing this subject teaching for the last ten or more years. I felt happy because even without referring books I could teach the topics recollecting from my memory. Of course, physically I felt tired after handling the class for more than three and half hours in a stretch (of course with two breaks).
