A New Member of the JSE Family
We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Anna Bargagliotti from Loyola Marymount University has
joined our JSE family as the Co-Editor of the Research on K-12 Statistics
Education Department. Several papers
are now being reviewed for this department and we hope more will be

The JSE Webinar Series on CAUSEweb
It has been almost a year now since we started a
new webinar series through the Consortium for the Advancement of
Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE). The series generally takes place on the
third Tuesday of each month, from 12 – 1 p.m. (U.S. Eastern time). Authors of
papers that appear in JSE discuss their work and answer questions about
their work. Each webinar includes
discussion of up to two papers from JSE.
For more information on webinars that have already taken place, in
addition to upcoming webinars, please visit https://www.causeweb.org/webinar/jse/.
JSE on Facebook and Twitter
To get the word out about JSE and to provide
opportunities for readers to share and discuss articles from JSE, a
Facebook group has been created. If
you have a Facebook account, you can access our new group and request to
join by going to https://www.facebook.com/groups/486553198048126/?ref=ts&fref=ts. Note that you can also simply do a search
within Facebook for “Journal of Statistics Education.” We will use this group to make
announcements related to JSE and to share links to articles that are
published in each new issue.
Hopefully, this will also become a place where you can connect with
other statistics educators.
There is also a Twitter account for JSE that you
can follow if you use Twitter (@JStatEd).
