June Teaching and Learning webinar, presented by Nicholas Horton, Amherst College
Title: Teaching the Past, Present, and Future of Statistics
Abstract: In 2014 Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies (COPSS) published a
book entitled "Past, Present, and Future of Statistical Science" that contains
52 short chapters contributed by past winners of one of the COPSS Awards. The goal of the
book (which is freely downloadable from the COPSS website or http://tinyurl.com/copss-ppf
) was to "showcase the breadth and vibrancy of statistics, to describe current
challenges and new opportunities, to highlight the exciting future of statistical science,
and to provide guidance for future generations of statisticians (page xvii)." In this
webinar, I will describe how these chapters were integrated into a theoretical statistics
course to help students see the big picture and potential for statistics.
