Every month, the professional development meetings of statisticians and data scientists at Waite, known as StatsPD@Waite, bring together specialists in various aspects of data sciences in agriculture from Waite, Roseworthy and Adelaide.
Please join us for the next StatsPD@Waite seminar where Annie Conway and Sam Rogers from the Biometry Hub will present on their Data Stories project funded by Yipti Grant.
Also please note that the StatsPD@Waite meetings are recorded. If you have a question to the speaker but had rather not be recorded, please send me your question via chat during the meeting and I will ask it on your behalf.

Title: Data Stories: A Resource for Statistics and Agriculture Education
Presenter: Annie Conway and Sam Rogers
Last year we successfully applied for the Yipti Grant, for a project in the area of agricultural education. Our project, titled “Data Stories”, is an online resource consisting of a curated collection of real datasets, showcasing the variety of research undertaken in agricultural science. Accompanying each dataset is a story – a short document that includes a background of the research project, and a tutorial of statistical methods that may be used to analyse the data. In this talk we will share the progress of the project, and discuss the ways in which this educational resource might be integrated into our current approach to statistical education.
