Catalysts in Japan: Part II

Bob is wearing a tie...or is
it Photoshop?
Joan and Bob gave three invited presentations in Tokyo, Japan, as guests of Rikkyo University and The University of Tokyo. On March 5, 2011 they presented Using Activity-Based Instruction to Develop Students' Understanding of Statistics at the Japanese Conference on Teaching Statistics. On March 6, 2011 they presented Assessing Important Learning Outcomes for a First Course in Statistics at the annual meeting of the Japanese Statistical Society. On March 8, 2011 they gave three talks about their NSF-funded work in statistics education to the faculty affiliated with the Center for Statistics and Information (CSI) of Rikkyo University. Despite the earthquakes which occurred as their flight home was boarding, they arrived safely home after an interesting and enjoyable week in Japan.
