The Annual Conference for Teachers of Statistics in Medicine and Allied Health Sciences.

The Annual Meeting for Teachers of Statistics in Medicine and Allied Health Sciences, also known as “Burwalls”, is an annual conference with the aim of encouraging and equipping those responsible for teaching statistics and evidence-based medicine to students or professionals in medicine and health and social care in Higher Education, the NHS, or similar institutions.

Burwalls is a great opportunity to network with other teachers of statistics in the Medicine and Allied Health Sciences field. The conference is an invaluable opportunity to compare notes with others working in related areas, find out what other statistics groups are doing and gain some friends and contacts in the field.

Burwalls has teamed up with Passion-Driven Statistics to offer a post-conference virtual workshop.

Wednesday 13th to Friday 15th July. Daily from 2 – 4 pm (BST)

This workshop will support instructors in implementing the Passion-Driven Statistics curriculum and engaging students at many different levels, including complete beginners. Passion-Driven Statistics is a project-based introductory curriculum that has been implemented as a statistics course, a research methods course, a data science course, a capstone experience, and a summer research boot camp with students from a wide variety of academic settings. The curriculum engages students in authentic projects with large, real-world data sets from the very first day! The focus is on welcoming and empowering students to ask and answer questions they care about. Workshop sessions will include a brief presentation focused on the nuts and bolts of the Passion-Driven Statistics model followed by hands-on experience with the steps that allow students to engage in independent research. Each instructor’s experience in the workshop will be individualized to their own interests, background and needs.

Laptop computers are required. If you are proficient in a specific statistical software platform and have it available on your laptop, you are welcome to use it for the hands-on portion. For those interested in starting to learn a code-based software platform, we will support you in using SAS in the cloud (free and requiring nothing to be downloaded onto your laptop).
