1330-1445                                          A full 1-hr preview
of BBC-commissioned film 'Joy of Stats' 

(plus a short discussion session with the Wingspan Productions team) 

            

1500-1700                                          Towards more
accessible conceptions of statistical 

inference (a 'read paper' meeting on a landmark statistical education

research paper by Professor Chris Wild, University of Auckland,

New Zealand and colleagues) 

 

FURTHER INFORMATION 

 

The Joy of Stats takes viewers on a fascinating journey into the world
of statistics and the remarkable power they have to change our
understanding of the world we live in. The programme is presented by
Swedish academic superstar Hans Rosling, who uses the power of
statistics to change our understanding of global development over the
last 200 years. In a rollercoaster ride from the bowels of some of the
world's greatest supercomputers to the frontlines of scientific
discovery, The Joy of Stats exposes the explosive growth of the best
method of understanding ourselves and our universe. 

 

This preview event will include a 15-min discussion session with Dan
Hillman, Producer/Director and Archie Baron, Creative Director, at
Wingspan Productions, the company which produced the film.

 

N.B. The Joy of Stats is part of 'World of Wonder', the BBC's Year of
Science 2010. It will be broadcast on BBC Four in December 2010. Seven
short Joy of Stats films will also be freely available after
transmission from the Open University at
www.open.ac.uk/openlearn/joyofstats
<http://www.open.ac.uk/openlearn/joyofstats> . 

 

Towards more accessible conceptions of statistical inference is an event
for academic and professional statisticians, and other subject
specialists who use statistics to get information from their data,
researchers in statistics education, teachers of statistics at all
levels and everybody interested in the future of statistics teaching!
It is an opportunity to meet and openly discuss this new research paper
with the authors: Professor Chris Wild, Maxine Pfannkuch and Matt Regan,
University of Auckland, New Zealand; and Nicholas Horton Smith College,
USA. The paper is available in downloadable form at
http://www.rss.org.uk/preprints (for those who would like to read the
paper before the event). 

 

Their paper is set to transform the international landscape of
statistical education. It looks afresh at the way statistics is taught
and 'reconceptualises fundamental concepts'. With technology as the
ultimate game changer, we can conceptualise in ways that were previously
unavailable, enabling access to deeper concepts at much earlier stages
of development.  

 

The paper appeals to us all to draw inspiration from gifted
communicators of data stories like Hans Rosling; involve ourselves in
blank-slate thinking; and try to come up with creative new ways in which
students can interact with and learn from data and conceptualise the big
ideas of statistics!

 

We look forward to seeing you at both events.
