D. AERA Faculty Institute for the Teaching of Statistics with Large-Scale Date Sets. “The Faculty Institute’s goal is to help faculty use large-scale federal data sets in their courses. Especially important are data sets sponsored by the NCES, NSF, and other federal agencies. These data sets, often longitudinal and nationally representative, offer an excellent opportunity to conduct research and learn advanced quantitative methods with high quality policy relevant data. This Institute aims to “train the trainers”; that is, to teach faculty to incorporate these data sets in their statistics and methodology courses, thereby preparing the next generation of researchers to take advantage of these rich data resources in their research. This Institute will be held June 15-17, 2011 at Stanford University. The Institute will cover participant expenses (transportation, meals, and lodging.) The selection process is competitive. The application deadline is January 20, 2011. For more detailed information, see”
