I apologize for the gap of posts … another family member died. This time, it was my mother-in-law. My mother-in-law was a fine, well read, intelligent woman. She will be missed.
However, when we (the sages and I) first formed this blog, the intention was that I wouldn’t be the only writer, thus if “situations” arose, we figured there would be at least a blog a week. And though we hear from Hal Kiess, the other sages have … well, have other sagely things to do. We have a decent enough following, and so it seemed appropriate to reach out to the readers. If you would like to try your hand at blogging about the teaching of applied statistics, please contact me at East Stroudsburg University, and we can try you out as a guest blogger. It’s OK if you are like me (a sage in training). However, if you know a Statistical Sage, please forward this blog to them and say … “Others need to hear your words of sageliness on the teaching of applied statistics.”
The topic until the end of the year is Great Teaching. As we tend to get people new to the blog at the beginning of each semester, January will just be a brief review of getting a class started and getting information from this blog. I’ll talk to Hal about what our next topic should be for February. If there are topics you would like to read about, please just let us know!
Enjoy the end of the semester!
