|Statistics Education educators and researchers playing in the sand.|
From 17 to 23 July 2011, the seventh biennial Forum of the International Collaboration for Research on Statistical Reasoning, Thinking and Literacy (SRTL-7) took place on Texel Island in The Netherlands. The Freudenthal Institute for Science and Mathematics Education of the Utrecht University hosted this SRTL-7. During the Forum, a small group of worldwide Statistics Education educators and researchers presented and discussed research on the theme: “New approaches to developing reasoning about samples and sampling in informal statistical inference”.
The Forum was structured with long presentations (90 min.), short presentations (30 min.), and whole and small group discussions, organized by thematic clusters focusing on Primary school, Middle school, Secondary education, Tertiary education, and Teacher education.
Inspired and exhausted by the intensive scientific and social programs, the participants went home full of new ideas. Like in previous SRTL forums, joint publications (an edited book and a journal special issue) are planned to publish the results of SRTL-7.
