We invite instructors who teach a post-calculus introductory statistics course to attend an NSF-sponsored four-day workshop on incorporating an active-learning and data-oriented focus into this course.  Participants will receive a complimentary copy of the preliminary edition Statistical Concepts, Applications, and Theory by Rossman and Chance, to be published by Duxbury.  During the workshop, participants will immerse themselves in use of the activities and receive advice for implementing components or the entire course at their own institution.
