S.T.A.T.S (Statistics Teaching and Training for Students) brings together faculty and graduate students to foster development of the statistics community in the Queen’s Faculty of Education. We aim to make statistics accessible to our community by providing resources, workshops, and personal connections. With a model of fostering growth through mentorship, we facilitate a range of statistics workshops run by our faculty and graduate students. All workshops are paired with graduate-student run introductory sessions. These optional sessions contain all of the necessary information needed to get the most out of the workshop. The STATS members enjoy a collaborative professional learning community, with the vision of promoting deep understanding of quantitative inquiry. This vision is guided by the following goals:
- Create a supportive space for sharing, learning, and demystifying statistics,
- Explore the challenges of educational research, and
- Provide student-lead support beyond the classroom setting.
