To be an effective statistician, practically every statistics student will need to collaborate with nonstatisticians. We will discuss practices for teaching the nontechnical skills essential for success as a statistician such as listening, summarizing, and paraphrasing; asking good questions; explaining statistics to nonstatisticians; structuring effective meetings; teamwork; collaborative processes for approaching any applied statistics problem; oral and written communication; and making ethical decisions. Please join this discussion to learn or share best practices in teaching effective statistical collaboration skills.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
