re:  Free Statistics Workshop for HE Staff on 8th September

We have been asked to help draw your attention to a workshop on 8th September 2005 
re: the FDTL STARS project resources.  If you have ever needed worksheets using real 
datasets, then maybe the workshop will be of interest to you or colleagues?  See the 
email below for more info.

Subject:        	Free Statistics Workshop for HE Staff on 8th September (MSOR)

Would you please circulate this message to all appropriate colleagues and
accept my apologies if you receive it more than once.

On 8th September 2005 the FDTL4 project STARS (Creation of Statistical
Resources from Real Datasets) is running a free workshop in Coventry for
staff who teach statistics to level 1 students or above.

The workshop will illustrate the materials developed via the project and
show how you can tailor them to your own requirements.

We've been using real data, coupled with actual scenarios, to produce
worksheets for users of, mainly, Excel, MINITAB and SPSS. The worksheets
are intended for use by non-specialist, and specialist, statistics staff
and students.

In addition we've attempted to combat assignment plagiarism by developing
ways of producing individualised datasets, questions and answers using
Excel.

The following timetable for the day is envisaged.
 10.30am  Registration and refreshments
 11.00am  Introduction to STARS, worksheet usage and feedback
 12.30pm  Lunch
  1.30pm  Creation of individualised datasets using Excel
  2.30pm  EITHER  Creation of individualised  OR  Talks from:
                  questions and answers           NAG, MINITAB & SPSS
                  using Excel
  3.30pm  Overall feedback, and suggestions for piloting and embedding
  3.45pm  Tea and departure

Please reply (to [log in to unmask], preferably with Workshop and
MSOR in the subject) if you'd like to attend the workshop and I'll confirm
the arrangements nearer the time.

Finally, for anyone able to pilot at least one worksheet with students in
the term/semester beginning September/October 2005 we'd like to offer a £50
voucher (your choice of either M&S or Waterstone's). Those of you who've
already been offered a £10 voucher will obviously receive £50-worth instead
:-). If you think you'd be interested in piloting please let me know by
replying to [log in to unmask], preferably with Piloting and MSOR
in the subject.

As a matter of interest we're using business, health and psychology
datasets related to:

Business
 Fast Food Purchasing
 Employment Satisfaction Survey
 Student Debt
 Transport
 Bank of England  }   At least
 Cadbury-Schweppes} one of these

Health
 Obesity
 Triglyceride
 Breakfast (and its effect on children’s hunger and calorie consumption)
 Overdose
 IVF

Psychology
 Bullying
 Dyslexia
 Spatial Memory
 Psychology Student Survey
 Smoking Attitudes              }   At least
 Academic Behavioural Confidence} one of these


All the best for now.

Colin.
