“Statistics Communication and (in)numeracy” reading group
In this reading group we focus on literature on the wide topic of statistics communication and (in)numeracy. During the fall semester of 2021-2022, meetings will take place online via MS Teams on Tuesdays, 13.00-14.00h. At each meeting, two participants present a scientific article on the topic. The focus is on the research methods and the important findings. Other participants can read these papers as a preparation, but this is not mandatory.
If you would like to join the reading group, please contact me via s.j.w.willems[at]fsw.leidenuniv.nl.
