IASE, the International Association for Statistical Education, functions as the international umbrella organization for statistics education. It seeks to improve statistics education at all levels from elementary (primary) school through to the training of professionals, and to increase the uptake of statistics education world wide. IASE fosters international cooperation, and stimulates discussion and research. It disseminates ideas, strategies, research findings, materials and information using publications, international conferences, and increasingly, this website.
IASE is formally constituted as the education section of the International Statistical Institute (ISI). It may be joined independently, however, by anyone who wishes to participate in IASE's activities, wishes to be a part of an international community of statistics educators, wishes to share experiences with and learn from the experiences of other statistics educators around the world, or simply wishes to support those working to achieve IASE's goals. IASE has approximately 500 members, 20% of whom belong to ISI and 80% who do not. The membership is largely made up of teachers, lecturers and professors of statistics, applied and government statisticians and education researchers.
The most rewarding aspect of IASE membership is participating in an international community of people who believe in the value of statistics education and wish to advance it. Members also benefit from reduced registration fees at IASE conferences and the main ISI conferences. They receive the ISI Newsletter and the IASE Review. They may subscribe at a reduced rate to statistical journals, for example the ISI flagship journal, theInternational Statistical Review,Short Book Reviews, Teaching Statistics (with includes the regular insert IASE Matters) and may purchase other IASE and ISI publications at a discounted price. An IASE membership application form is available from the IASE Members page.
