Dear R-Users,

given you have been teaching R to students (grad level, mainly social
science background, no previous programming experience, 80% know SPSS),
what are your experiences concerning the style of teaching? Do you
prefer to stand in front of the class like in "normal" lectures and you
show them slides? Or do you you explain some concept (for example things
like mydata[order(var1, var2),]) and show it directly on the computer
via beamer/projector and also the students have to enter it on the
computers in front of them.

Any experiences you can share are highly appreciated.
