The statistics education research discipline and statistics education reform movement have focused on undergraduate education, with little attention given to graduate statistics education. Our session will illuminate the similarities and differences between undergraduate and graduate statistics education. Also, we will propose new and innovative strategies for integrating the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) report into statistics instruction for graduate students across a variety of disciplines.

The panelists for this session are experienced statistics educators, each teaching multiple graduate level statistics courses. The group will draw from experience and anecdotal data to emphasize the need to study graduate student statistics education. We will discuss the GAISE report and suggest approaches for integrating those guidelines into graduate statistics education and training relative to what has already been done with undergraduate statistics education.

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