I couldn’t talk about ACToP and PASSHE’s Potluck Conference without also asking if any of our readers is interested in joining me in a symposium on the teaching of applied statistics for EPA’s Conference this coming March 1 – 4 in Pittsburgh, http://www.easternpsychological.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=1. The Call for Submissions should be coming out soon, and this could take some planning. If anyone is interested in joining me in Pittsburgh for such a symposium, please contact me.
EPA is truly a great organization, and there are also a group of people teaching applied statistics. However, like the sages, they are clearly greying, and each year I see fewer and fewer return. Gathering together at such a conference is not only educational, but also can help you for a network of support as you continue to grow as a teacher and researcher. Of course, my favorite reason for going to EPA is that I get to hang out with friends and meet new ones. The cost of EPA membership has increased, but it’s still quite reasonable, and all members get to attend the conference for no additional fees (something we can all be happy about).
And for my PASSHE colleagues, in honor of EPA being in the great Keystone State, on Thursday, March 1st, all PASSHE attendees (including PASSHE’s Chancellor) will be invited to a meet and mingle session. Details will be discussed at PASSHE’s Potluck Conference at Kutztown in October.
If people in other parts of the United State or the World have appropriate conferences for our readership, please let me know.
