The United States Conference On Teaching Statistics (USCOTS) 2015 will take place at The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel, Pennsylvania on May 28th - 30th.

Helping students to make connections is one of the most challenging yet important aspects of effective teaching. Teachers of statistics strive to help their students to make connections with each other, to make connections among concepts in the course, and to make connections between statistics and other disciplines. Making professional connections can also help to enhance a statistics teacher's effectiveness, for example by making connections with other statistics teachers and with scholars in fields that use statistics. The challenge and usefulness of making connections will be the unifying theme of USCOTS '15.

This conference is designed to model good teaching in its sessions, social activities, and hallways. As with previous USCOTS, it will consist of plenary sessions, breakout sessions, and "poster and beyond" sessions. These will address how to make change happen in four main areas: curriculum, pedagogy, resources, and educational research.
