Data, Analytics and Statistics Instruction (DASI)

Data, Analytics and Statistics Instruction (DASI) is a Specific Interest Group (SIG) within DSI. The primary focus of the DASI SIG is on providing information for and improving education and instruction related to the effective use of data for decision-making. For the 2019 SEDSI Meeting in Savannah, GA, the DASI SIG will have invited sessions, each addressing a particular topic that generally features three or more presenters. The goal of DASI sessions is to engage attendees in current topics of general interest. Sessions generally have time allotted for interactive discussion about the topic. Individuals who want to a part of an invited session are encouraged to e-mail with a short description of a topic or topics they would be willing to present during a DASI session at SEDSI. The DASI co-chairs will confer and work with those making suggestions to mold the invited sessions for the annual meeting. Typical topics address the practice of, software for, curriculum for and instruction for using data for decision-making in a variety of settings. As has been indicated, the conference management system does not allow submissions for this SIG. Please send a short description of possible topics to be considered for a DASI invited session at SEDSI 2019 by e-mail to
