Session 3H. Teaching Consultancy Skills to Statisticians

Session Organizer(s)

Gabriella M. Belli (USA)

Session Abstract

Statistical consulting is more than providing sound statistical expertise. It may cover anything from helping to formulate a research problem to writing the research report. Additionally, it requires non-statistical skills such as oral and written communication, general problem solving, session management, etc. Some ways that consultancy skills may be acquired is via formal coursework, mentorships, job training programs, by working jointly with faculty consultants, by informal training or observation, or simply through one's own experience.

The papers in this session will focus on various aspects of preparing students for statistical consultancy. The perspectives will represent what is being done in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America.
