The following webinar (sponsored by CAUSEweb) may be of interest to Project MOSAIC folks:
A special Teaching and Learning Webinar:
"Bootstrapping and randomization: Seeing all the moving parts"
with Chris J. Wild, University of Auckland
2:30 to 3:00 pm Eastern time, Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011
This webinar is a short visual, narrative journey from the vibrating boxplot imagery of the author's 2009 USCOTS Plenary and Wild et al. (2011) to visualisations of bootstrap confidence intervals and, if time permits, randomisation tests. Software under development will be used and made available as-is to any brave souls willing to live on the edge.
The webinar will be conducted using the ReadyTalk software platform. A computer with internet access and a telephone is all you need. ReadyTalk allows you to watch presentations on your computer, and participate in the conversation via phone. There is no cost to the participants in the US and Canada for either the telephone call or computer connection. The webinar will be recorded and the archived version (with both audio and video) will be available on-line within a few days following the presentation if you are unable to attend. 

We will make available to registered participants, in advance of the webinar, the PowerPoint slides to enable you to take notes on the slides during the presentation. Sign-up to participate in this webinar: http://www.causeweb.org/webinar/activity/2011-11/
