Schield invited to give Statistical Literacy workshop at US Conference on Teaching Statistics

submitted by

Milo Schield, Professor of Business Administration, has been invited to give a 3 hour workshop titled “Statistical Literacy: Evaluating Evidence from Observational Studies”. This topic is quite controversial among statistical educators. Many say statistical educators should stop after saying “Association is not Causation”. Milo argues that consumers and decision makers need more, and that statistics educators can do more. His workshop is one of six invited half-day workshops at this conference. He will give this workshop on Thursday May 16 at the US Conference on Teaching Statistics (USCOTS) at Penn State College. Milo was named as a Fellow by the American Statistical Association in 2018.
