Teaching Statistics

The Teaching Statistics Section was established in 2022 following a successful three-year run as a special interest group. The Section provides a platform to collate and disseminate ideas and best practice in the teaching of statistics.

The section will mainly target statistics educators, which includes those working in post-18 education, including higher education and professional training. They will promote teaching excellence in statistics to increase statistical literacy among students, as student involvement in the section will be necessary and beneficial in achieving the goals of the section.

We envisage the following aims for this section:

  • To promote good teaching practice in statistics across post-18 education, including higher education and professional training
  • To promote innovative use of technology in teaching statistics
  • To facilitate the discussion of modernising statistics curricula for both specialist and non-specialist students in higher education, learning from institutions who have successfully implemented curricula combining modern statistics with areas such as computing and data science
  • To promote good assessment practices in higher education for specialist and non-specialist students
  • To promote the study of statistics to students in higher and post-18 education, either as a specialist pathway or as a valuable part of a degree in another discipline
  • To promote statistics education generally, highlighting the importance of statistical literacy.
