The interdisciplinary field of inquiry that is statistics education research spans a diverse set of disciplines and methodologies. A recent review of a subset of this literature, the research on teaching and learning statistics at the college level, was used to raise some practical issues and pose some challenges to the field of statistics education. These will be addressed in the CAUSE webinar. In addition, a recent doctoral dissertation study will be used to illustrate some of these challenges and offer suggestion for how to deal with them.
