HHMI BioInteractive has partnered with QUBES to raise awareness of their free science education resources with undergraduate faculty. BioInteractive provides free multimedia resources, including apps, animations, videos, interactive and virtual labs, supplemented by teacher guides and classroom activities. Recently, BioInteractive has developed quantitative and data-centric resources, including statistics, data manipulation, and graph generation and interpretation activities. Explore videos of scientific stories with interviews and discussions with actual scientists.
New Faculty Mentoring Network opportunity: HHMI BioInteractive Data Explorer FMN Spring 2020
Join us to develop data visualization/statistical analysis teaching modules featuring authentic scientific research data to tell exciting biological stories! This faculty mentoring network (FMN) focuses on producing a suite of data analysis modules for college introductory biology or advanced high school level biology. Modules will cover a range of topics identified to be of interest to students, based on empirical student audience research. The participants will coordinate with each other to avoid redundancy of topics, help locate data, and provide feedback to each other. The resulting modules will be published on the QUBESHUB website and receive a DOI, similar to this example. The developed modules will eventually be incorporated into HHMI BioInteractive’s upcoming Data Explorer App.
Applications close December 8th, 2019
Dates and Location
This FMN will take place from February–June 2020. Participants will meet online regularly (about every two to three weeks) to support the development of the modules, culminating in a final required meeting at the QUBES/BioQUEST Summer Workshop at the University of Pittsburgh, PA, from June 22–27, 2020. HHMI will cover registration and housing costs, but each participant will be responsible for their own travel to and from the workshop. More information regarding the Summer Workshop can be found at https://qubeshub.org/community/groups/summer2020. Apply using this FORM.
