Engaging with the statistics education community (multiplier events)
IASE Roundtable Berlin July 2016
The ProCivicStat team led this event in collaboration with the International Association for Statistics Education and other sponsors. The Roundtable theme and scientific program was designed to contribute to the goals of IASE and ProCivicStat, and all other sponsors. We brought together teachers and researchers from around the world to work on the theme Promoting understanding of statistics about society. Our aim was to advance knowledge about ways to improve the understanding of statistics related to key social phenomena – such as trends in migration, employment, equality, demographic change, crime, poverty, and human rights.
