Abstract: Collaborative academic statisticians are often involved in many different aspects of research and training, and are often interested in a variety of areas. In this talk, I will share how an idea for developing videos to help train and mentor the next generation of applied statisticians came to fruition. We will view an example video and discussion that led to the creation of a short course on navigating difficult conversations in statistical collaboration. This short course was developed with an additional colleague. The ideas in the videos and that short course have been woven into more areas of interest, leading to new projects, new collaborations, and new ideas to include. I conclude by sharing current and future directions for this work. This is joint work with Julia Sharp (NIST), Zach Weller (GTI Energy), Megan Higgs (Critical Inference), and more recently Ryan Peterson (University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus).
