The JSE Webinar Series on CAUSEweb
The JSE webinar
series continues to take place approximately once each month, on the third
Tuesday of the month, from 1 – 2 p.m. (U.S. Eastern time), through the
Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE). 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

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).
