John Holcomb
2003 Recipient of the Waller Education Award


John Holcomb teaches at Cleveland State University, having previously taught at Youngstown State University, where he won the University Distinguished Teaching Award. He is firmly committed to the use of real data, group work, and projects in his courses. He expects students to use technology and to clearly communicate their findings as they analyze data. Colleagues describe John's love of learning and teaching as contagious and his courses as 'data centered.' He brings quantitative news and reports presented in the media into class to enhance student interest. John has done a great deal of consulting, much of it for educational institutions, and has written on ethical issues in the scholarship of teaching and learning.

John has been very active in the Statistical Education Section of ASA, for which he served as Program Chair in 2002. He is a member of the Joint MAA-ASA Committee on Undergraduate Statistics and has given many talks on statistics education at meetings around the country. He was Project Coordinator for a Statistics Thinking with Active Strategies (STATS) project workshop, sponsored by the NSF, and was also a Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) Fellow and a Carnegie Scholar.
