The Roundtable format differs from many conferences. Over four and a half days, only 16 invited papers will be presented. Each paper will receive a full hour for presentation and discussion. The authors have a worldwide distribution, including at least nine countries.
After the conference, these papers will be published in a monograph. The monograph will serve as a starting point for further research on issues related to the role of technology in statistics education. Papers will focus on the following topics: Creating data scientists; Techonology in statistics education in developing countries; Students' access to data; Teaching and learning with large data sets; Development, implementation, and assessment of classroom technology.
