Workshop will be divided into three parts, a general one and
two practical ones with limited space for 20 attendees. You have to
register for parts 2 and 3 using the formthat will be available at the workshop
website. You will get the information after registration for the conference.
What is the focus of this workshop?
This workshop may be useful for anyone with an interest in one of the
following three topics:
- Statistics Education within the pedagogical paradigm of social
- Educational Research based on objectively measured learning activities
which have never been available before,
- Empirical Research which is fully reproducible – this is called
Reproducible Computing which supports communication, collaboration, and
dissemination of research results.
The main focus of this workshop is on Statistics Education or any type of
education where students need to be able to interact with and communicate
about empirical research results. In this sense, the workshop may be of
interest to academics from various fields.
The second focus is on Educational Research and Quality Control (of the
course environment). The workshop clearly illustrates how the learning
outcomes (as measured by objective exams) can be related to (or predicted
by) various factors such as: objectively measured learning activities,
learning attitudes, social interaction/networking, etc... The model that
describes such a relationship is useful for research purposes and allows us
to control/improve the quality of our education.
Anyone with an interest in presenting Empirical Research results in a
form which allows readers to fully reproduce and reuse the underlying
computations, may find this workshop useful too. The pedagogical focus of
this workshop does not imply that Reproducible Computing technology is
solely useful for educational purposes.
