The International Association for Statistical Education (IASE) is pleased to announce that its 12th Satellite Conference will take place from 30 August to 4 September 2021, a few weeks after the 63rd World Statistics Congress (WSC 63, 11–16 July).
IASE Satellites bring 80-120 folks from around the world and the host country to share their passion, expertise and experiences in statistics education.
More than ever before, analyzing the pandemic involves statistics and data science and makes visible the importance of these fields. The repositories of the top universities (like Johns Hopkins and Oxford) have shown the power of open data and open code. Data visualization tools like Gapminder and Our world in Data are freely available, as are state-of-the-art computational tools. Promoting an interest in data science and learning more about statistics in this era, individually or at school or university, should be a high priority for all of us in the field of statistics education. The pandemic provides an opportunity to revisit some old ways of doing things and perhaps bring changes that may offer something better. This is why our IASE 2021 theme, Statistics Education in the Era of Data Science, is important.
We invite you to participate in the Satellite Conference, to join us in sharing knowledge, questions, and ideas that enable us to learn from the work of esteemed colleagues from around the globe and help to advance the teaching and learning of statistics and data science. The conference will be a mixture of plenary talks, papers, poster sessions, and hands-on workshops.
