Digital Options for Teaching Tiny Earth Labs and Activities

From Sarah Miller:

I've compiled a growing list of resources for moving wet labs to digital, including several from SABER contributions in the past few days, plus many other sources. It's designed for the Tiny Earth CURE, but most of the resources are more general for bio/micro/STEM labs. Email me directly if you have additional resources you'd like added.

COVID-19 Data Set

From the description on Kaggle

"Johns Hopkins University has made an excellent dashboard using the affected cases data. Data is extracted from the google sheets associated and made available here.

Edited:
Now data is available as csv files in the Johns Hopkins Github repository. Please refer to the github repository for the Terms of Use details. Uploading it here for using it in Kaggle kernels and getting insights from the broader DS community."

SEIR Worksheet in R

This is a relatively quick activity. A few lines of code utilizing the EpiDynamics R package gives students access to simulations of SEIR curves and can explore how lowering transmission rate helps flatten the curve. OER activity - fork it to add your own twist!

Whiteboard App

A colleague recommended this. He said it is easy to use, students can use it in a breakout session, and you can save the whiteboard when you are done.

Gapminder

A fantastic tool for exploring public health, data, and data visualization.  The link will take you to teaching materials, but consider using the videos to prompt question exploration in the tools section.

ACCESSIBLE TEACHING IN THE TIME OF COVID-19

Article from Aimi Hamraie on the Mapping Access blog on ways to improve accessibility when transferring your typically in-person teaching to an online-environment.  I found this short article to have great ideas about how to incorporate students into the redesign of the course if needed and other ways to help from everyone feeling disconnected when now in an online environment.

Teach Data Science Blog

"Each day during the summer of 2019 we intend to add a new entry to this blog on a given topic of interest to educators teaching data science and statistics courses. Each entry is intended to provide a short overview of why it is interesting and how it can be applied to teaching. We anticipate that these introductory pieces can be digested daily in 20 or 30 minute chunks that will leave you in a position to decide whether to explore more or integrate the material into your own classes. By following along for the summer, we hope that you will develop a clearer sense for the fast moving landscape of data science."

This group is back at it with ideas for teaching online.

Project EDDIE (Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry and Exploration)

Project EDDIE (Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry and Exploration) is a suite of education projects composed of STEM disciplinary and educational researchers. We develop flexible classroom teaching modules using large, publicly available datasets to engage students in STEM and improve their quantitative reasoning. Teaching modules span topics such as ecology, limnology, geology, hydrology, and environmental sciences. EDDIE also helps build the associated professional development needed to ensure effective use of the teaching modules.

The Science of Effective Mentorship in STEMM

Mentorship is a catalyst capable of unleashing one's potential for discovery, curiosity, and participation in STEMM and subsequently improving the training environment in which that STEMM potential is fostered. Mentoring relationships provide developmental spaces in which students' STEMM skills are honed and pathways into STEMM fields can be discovered. Because mentorship can be so influential in shaping the future STEMM workforce, its occurrence should not be left to chance or idiosyncratic implementation.
