Description:
United States Conference on Teaching Statistics (USCOTS), will be held in Raleigh, North Carolina, from May 16-18, 2013, and hosted by the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE). The conference theme is "Making Change Happen." Change can be difficult, but also exhilarating, scary, but also liberating. Previous USCOTS sessions have advocated various types of changes in teaching statistics likely to produce enhanced student learning. Conference participants often become excited about visionary ideas presented, but struggle to follow through and affect sustained changes at their home institutions. USCOTS '13 will address the goal of making change happen. This conference is designed to model good teaching in its sessions, social activities, and hallways. As with previous USCOTS, it will consist of plenary sessions, breakout sessions, and "poster and beyond" sessions. These will address how to make change happen in four main areas: curriculum, pedagogy, resources, and educational research. For more information and registration go to http://www.causeweb.org/uscots/
