Be a Speaker at Making effective decisions: Teaching Statistics to Students of Business (TSSB)

Making effective decisions: Teaching Statistics to Students of Business (TSSB) is an international conference that will gather professors, researchers and corporate experts around the question: How can we make the teaching of statistics in business even more effective?

Do you teach statistics in business schools and want to tell us about your experience? Are you a researcher or a corporate innovator who contributes to the evolution teaching statistics in business programs in any way? If so, we would be pleased to welcome you as a speaker in TSSB.

Express yourself in various ways

Speakers may choose between two intervention formats and have flexible intervention time to interact with attendees:

  • Conventional presentations: make your choice among three durations (short: 15 minutes, medium: 30 minutes, long: 45 minutes). In all cases, presentations are followed by a 5-minutes long Questions & Answers session.
  • Workshops: Workshops include simulating classes or animating the audience around the use of a product. Please specify the material you will be using if any and if participants are requested to attend with smartphones, tablets or personal computers. Make your choice among three durations (short: 30 minutes, medium: 60 minutes, long: 90 minutes).

According to the influx of demands, we may need to ask authors of medium or long format requests (presentations or workshops) to adapt their intervention to a shorter format. Final durations will be communicated in the finalized program which will be made available on May 5, 2017.

Incorporate exciting topics

Include your intervention in one of the following topics:

  • Technological innovations: From online market research software and survey platforms to social networks and MOOCs, many technologies are used for a continuous improvement of teaching methods in business and marketing programs. Workshops are particularly encouraged under this topic.
  • Statistical features & software innovations: What new statistical software interfaces and methods let business and marketing students have a better understanding and use of data analysis methods?

  • Collaborative innovations among actors of statistical teaching in business to enhance teaching statistics to business students. How can the communication between different actors of statistical teaching in business and marketing schools evolve for a continuous improvement of teaching statistics?
