Abstract/Summary Having attended the First International Conference on Teaching Statistics (ICOTS) in Sheffield in 1982 (and a few since then), I found it informative to look back and see what has happened in statistical education during the past three decades. In this chapter, I comment on some consistent themes and my perception of how the focus has changed over time, particularly from the viewpoint of training beyond the introductory course for students in other disciplines. Some comment is also made on particularly influential publications and other relevant meetings overseen by the International Association of Statistical Education (IASE). My vantage point is from involvement in, and then responsibility for, teaching biometry in an agriculture department for two decades, followed by another decade in university and statistical society management where I was not directly involved in the delivery of such coursework training.
