Looking for good people - statistical literacy

Dear members of the numeracy list:

The International Statistical Literacy Project of the International
Association for Statistical Education is looking for a volunteer or
volunteers who will help to maintain and update the resource listings for
Adult Learners and Adult Educators.

ISLP is an international initiative started a couple years ago, and aims to
be a one-stop webpage from which educators working at all levels and
contexts (primary, secondary, tertiatry, workplace, and more) can reach
materials focused on learning basic statistical concepts, developing
statistical literacy, and related issues. The ISLP is temporarily hosted
at: <> but will move in the
future into the IASE's official website.

Overall, ISLP is a wonderful promising resource and is steadily growing.
All the people who contribute to it are volunteers. I have been in charge
of the Adult section since ISLP started, but due to overload must find a
replacement. If you take this position, you will be asked to scout around
and send the ISLP coordinator suggestions and brief annotations for new
entries every once in a while, hopefully 2-3 times a year. No other ongoing
work in involved (except of course for enjoying the feeling you are helping
an international project).
While ISLP at present mainly serves as a hub and points users to other
addresses where the materials are actually hosted, it also wants to receive
source materials which will be placed on its own server. This means that it
is possible for practitiones to contribute lesson plans, class materials,
proven tips, etc to ISLP, and these will be credited to the contributor.

Please judge for your self by visiting any of the ISLP webpages at
<> (The Adult part is down
the list - just scroll)

If you are interested in helping ISLP, contact its coordinator, Prof Carol
Blumberg (Winona State University, USA), at: <>.

With best wishes to all of us for a happy and productive new year!
