The fall 2016 ASM M(icro)OOCs Course is a four-part webinar series, sponsored by ASM and QUBES focuses on increasing quantitative biology in undergraduate education. Each of the four 60-minute sessions will address common issues around teaching quantitative skills and reasoning, ranging from dilutions to graphing to data analysis.
June 01–December 15
BioInteractive offers free, engaging multimedia resources on a variety of science topics. In this group, participants will work in collaborative groups to adapt existing BioInteractive materials that focus on quantitative skills, have rich data sets, and are paired with primary literature for use in undergraduate introductory biology courses.

SimBio invites applications for a Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN) focused on using SimBio’s SimUText Ecology™ as a platform to incorporate more active learning into ecology classrooms. Because students typically complete SimBio chapters before class instructors can focus class time on student-centered activities that build on what students learned at home.

The Network for Integrating Bioinformatics into Life Sciences Education (NIBLSE) 2016 conference is being hosted by the University of Nebraska, Omaha from August 3-6. The conference will include reports from various NIBLSE teams, speaker presentations, and small group discussions.
We invite you to the Teaching Computation in the Sciences Using MATLAB workshop focused on building students’ ability to solve problems with computation using MATLAB in their STEM courses. Participants will share their successes developing computational skills using MATLAB in the undergraduate classroom and discuss best practices for the community. By attending the workshop, you will be part of a community effort to bring together best practices and teaching materials that will be made freely available through the SERC website. MathWorks (makers of MATLAB®) is sponsoring the workshop.
Location: Carleton College, Northfield, MN
Date: October 23-25, 2016
Application: Apply till September 2

InTeGrate is an NSF-funded program that “supports the teaching of geoscience in the context of societal issues, both within geoscience courses and across the undergraduate curriculum.” To help biology faculty use these materials, InTeGrate partnered with QUBES to run a faculty mentoring network.
Integrated Digitized Biocollections (iDigBio) recently participated in the 2016 National Academies Special Topics Summer Institute on Quantitative Biology. Members of the iDigBio team were super productive and used the workshop to their full advantage!
The Spring Conference of the Northeastern Section of the Mathematical Association of America (NES/MAA) was held June 3-4 at the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine... The meeting’s plenary lectures and organized events relate to quantitative literacy, big data, and mathematical biology.
