Statistics Resources in a Day – 21st April 2017

sigma Statistics Special Interest Group (SIG) ’Resource in a Day’ event

Date: 21st April 2017
Time: 9:45am – 4:30pm
Location: Millennium Point building, Birmingham City University

The statstutor Communities project allows academics to submit their resources to statstutor once peer reviewed so that they can be used in other Maths Support centres. Whilst many of us have resources we use with students, finding and collaborating with reviewers can be a barrier to sharing these resources.

After an introduction to submitting suitable resources, this event will concentrate on delegates working in small breakout groups to work on the following:
1. Potential Authors and Reviewers working together to finalise resources you already in draft form so that they are ready for submission to statstutor
2. Creation of new resources for techniques not listed on statstutor e.g. Multivariate techniques
3. Modifying existing SPSS or R based resources to cover a different software package e.g. SAS or STATA

A spreadsheet showing a list of resources which need reviewing and also suggestions for new resources can be found here.  If you have resources which need reviewing then do please add a row to the spreadsheet. If you are happy to review or create a new resource, add your initials to the relevant box on the spreadsheet.

During the day we will also have a general meeting of the statistics special interest group which will include discussion about improvements to statstutor and some short talks by sig members (further details and a programme to follow). Register for the event here.
