eCOTS 2022 - About


CAUSE is excited to announce the 2022 Electronic Conference on Teaching Statistics which will be held online on May 23rd to May 26th, 2022. The conference theme is "Preparing the Modern Student". The conference will include four keynote addresses by Mine Cetinkaya-Rundel at Duke University, Talithia Williams at Harvey Mudd College, Jasmine McNealy from the University of Florida and Rob Gould at University of California, Los Angeles. There will also be thirty-minute or seventy breakout sessions, online workshops, birds of a feather sessions, virtual poster sessions and reading groups.

We are calling for proposals for workshops and breakout sessions focusing on these four tracks.

  1. Statistical and Data Literacy for the Modern Student – what every student needs to know in personal and professional lives.
  2. Diversity, Inclusion and Social Justice in data science and statistics.
  3. Preparing Mentors, Leaders, and Teachers for tomorrow.
  4. The (old and new) skills needed for the modern data scientist and statistician.

This conference strives to drive the conversation on how to prepare the modern student.

In addition to the online content, there will also be regional face-to-face meetings to encourage discussion in local statistics and data science education communities.
