K.F. Smith Innovative Education
DescriptionAt K.F. Smith, we create innovative educational materials for math and statistics students. Completed and in-progress projects include interactive online graphics for calculus, hybrid textbooks (very short printed text supplemented by professionally-produced lecture videos online), educational graphic novels, smart online assessment systems, and more. K.F. Smith was founded by Dr. Alan Dabney, Associate Professor of Statistics at Texas A&M University.
The selected intern will work directly with Professor Dabney to carry out market research of undergraduate math and statistics students in the U.S. The goals of the internship are to (1) identify educational products or services that a large population of students would be interested in, and (2) draft a business plan around the identified products or services.
The intern will benefit by gaining experience in the educational publishing marketplace. Education is rapidly evolving away from classical models, creating exciting opportunities for innovation and creative solutions. Math and statistics education continues to grow as a national priority. Expertise in the emerging pedagogical innovations in this area would position the intern favorably for today's job market.
