The applications of statistics in a daily and professional context are numerous, but there are even more examples of faulty applications of statistics in such a context. Given the important role statistics play in research, politics, policy etc. it is of great importance that students and professional develop a good understanding of statistics. This requires a structured and phased approach. Characteristic for this approach is a fading degree of guidance by the teacher in consecutive phases, while the possibility of getting feedback on learning results continues to exist.
