Looking for an Inexpensive Conference in the Teaching of Statistics???

Is $15 for a conference on the teaching of statistics  inexpensive enough???

As professors in applied statistics, it is important that we attend conferences, but travel time and cost are an issue for most of us. I highly encourage everyone to look at the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics (CAUSE)’s Electronic Conference on Teaching Statistics (eCOTS).

“The Electronic Conference On Teaching Statistics (eCOTS) will take place from May 14-18, 2012. The conference will be hosted by the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE: www.CAUSEweb.org). Just like the United States Conference On Teaching Statistics (USCOTS), eCOTS has been designed to focus on undergraduate-level statistics education (including AP Statistics), with a target audience of statistics teachers. Whereas USCOTS is held in odd-numbered years, eCOTS will occur during even-numbered years and seeks to provide a virtual meeting space for educators to share ideas, teaching methods, and research results. It is hoped that eCOTS will be a forum where statistics educators from around the world can network and connect as they learn how to incorporate new ideas, methods, and resources into their existing courses or programs. The registration fee for attending eCOTS will be $15.”

Their Call for Proposals ends February 15th, 2012.

  1. These studies, statements and statistics can indeed be very helpful and I agree with most of them and with the fact that budget cuts are a concern.
