June 1  Kick off on QUBESHub

Online introductions and background information on modules and participant courses.

June 19-24 Face to Face Workshop, NCSU, Raleigh, NC

The HHMI BioInteractive FMN will participate in the National Academies Special Topics Summer Institute “Lowering the Activation Energy: Making Quantitative Biology More Accessible” offered by QUBES, BioQUEST and the Science Case Net.  This will be a working meeting during which participants will learn about and use evidence-based teaching strategies such as backward design, active learning, and assessment, as well as methods such as cases and modeling.  Hands on sessions at the institute will focus on resources and methods to address the special challenges associated with teaching quantitative biology. The HHMI BioInteractive FMN will begin working with their mentors on their modules during this meeting.

Summer 2016 Development Phase

Following the workshop, participants will work in small groups with three to five colleagues to further develop their module implementation plan. QUBESHub will provide space to share ideas, materials, and resources with the small groups and the larger group.  Groups will meet every other week for thirty minutes to update one another through the end of August.  

Fall 2016 Implementation Phase

Participants will continue to work with their mentors and small groups to implement their modules.  Meeting every other week for a thirty minute check in, the groups will continue to support one another with ideas, resources and feedback.  Online discussions and sharing of resources will supplement the synchronous conversations. This phase will conclude in December or May depending on the semester of implementation.

Sharing Final Products

The QUBESHub provides private space for the group to develop and discuss issues during the Development and Implementation phases.  At the end of the project, participants will work with BioInteractive to share their adaptations and user experiences on the QUBESHub.
