Genome Solver FMN
Faculty Training in Basic Bioinformatics
Participants in this FMN will focus on how to use the Genome Solver modules in undergraduate life science courses. Accepted applicants will customize and implement these resources. While doing this, they will participate in weekly virtual sessions to collaborate with and support others in the network and receive mentoring.
Description: Genome Solver (GS; https://qubeshub.org/groups/genomesolver) is joining forces with QUBES (http://qubeshub.org) to work with faculty who are interested in adapting and implementing their modules. Participating educators are encouraged to mix and match parts of modules and customize them for use in their classrooms.
Dates & Location:
The virtual kick-off will be held in mid-Sept, 2019 (date and time TBD). The FMN will continue online to support the customization and implementation of activities in your course during the Fall 2019 semester.
Commitment and Benefits of Participation:
To qualify, participants must be willing to incorporate the selected materials into at least two class periods (or equivalent) in their teaching during the Fall 2019 semester. Participants must also be able to commit ~1-2 hour per week for working with mentors and collaborating with other participants around the customization and implementation of the teaching materials. Additional time outside of these discussions may be required for independent work on adapting and reviewing modules.
**Access to Genome Solver teaching modules - participants will incorporate at least two of the selected materials in Fall 2019 classes (selected modules can be found here: https://qubeshub.org/community/groups/genomesolver)
**Access to Genome Solver experts**Online support throughout the process of implementing new materials in your course. Access to peer mentors on lecture/classroom/lab effective tips and strategies in small group virtual meetings every two weeks
**Recognition as a 2019 Genome Solver Education Scholar upon completion of all network requirements
