Report from the JSM Stat Ed Program Chair

Peter Westfall, 2009 Program Chair, Section on Statistical Education

Newsletter for the Section on Statistical Education
Volume 14, Number 1 (Spring 2009)

We will have a very good set of invited, topic contributed, contributed, and poster sessions lined up for Statistics Education in JSM 2009, extending across all days, including even Sunday and Thursday.

We have four interesting invited sessions for JSM 2009:

Sunday, 8/2, 4-5:50 PM, Teaching Bayesian Statistics to Non-Statisticians (Chair: Joe Gonzalez)

Monday, 8/3, 2:00-3:50 PM, Statistics in the "Research Methods" Courses (Chair: Deborah Dawson)

Tuesday 8/4, 10:30 AM -12:20 PM, Stirring the Pot: Radical Ideas in Statistics Education (Chair: Lorrie Hoffman)

Thursday, 8/6, 10:30 AM -12:20 PM, Who is Teaching the Statistics Courses? (Chair: Katherine Halvorsen)

There are many excellent topic contributed, regular contributed, and poster sessions as well. But at this writing, details are not available. Due to limitations, some who may have wanted a presentation had to be converted to a poster. This information is still up in the air, as the program has not been completely set and there are details to work out. If you have any questions, feel free to contact, and see you at JSM2009!
