The CATALST Group at the University of Minnesota

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
-- Margaret Mead

We are a collaboration of statistics education professionals who are striving to change the way statistics is taught to students, particularly at the introductory college level.

Our activities include:

  • Conducting research projects on developing and assessing statistical literacy, reasoning and thinking.
  • Developing and sharing research-based materials to promote these learning outcomes.
  • Exploring innovative approaches to online methods of teaching statistics.
  • Organizing opportunities to expand our knowledge of teaching and learning statistics through study groups and colloquia.
  • Active participation in the national and international statistics education communities.
  • Promoting the development of excellent teachers of statistics.

Statistics Instructors Lost in Cyberspace:
A New Online Statistics Teaching Discussion Group

This group connects online statistics instructors and provides a place for them to share ideas and resources. It is a place where those of us who teach online can support one another, collaborate, and commiserate. Teaching online can pose many unique challenges and opportunities for the statistics instructor, and sometimes, it's nice to share these things with others who understand, and to get new ideas about the many things that can be done in the online statistics course. If you would like more information about this group, please contact Dr. Michelle Everson at
