High-throughput Discovery Science & Inquiry-based Case Studies for Today's Students (HITS) network

Join the QUBES HITS Group...

The HITS network is creating novel case studies that use high-throughput datasets and approaches. Faculty and researchers form interdisciplinary teams with the goal of creating educational resources that others can adapt and implement in undergraduate and graduate courses. Join the HITS group on QUBES to (virtually) meet the people involved and see the development of exciting new high-throughput cases.

We encourage you to submit a membership request to join project groups and help create, adapt, and improve the resources created by HITS!

Become a HITS Case Fellow!

The HITS network has the goal of training researchers and educators in data analysis and current trends in high-throughput (HT) experimentation and support the design and implementation of inquiry-based case studies using authentic HT data. Faculty and postdoctoral fellows devoted to the use of case studies and problem-based learning pedagogies can apply to become HITS Case Fellows.

The HITS network will train Case Fellows in the use of case studies based on HT data by using a yearly workshop. The HITS workshop will provide training to Case Fellows so that they can work in groups to create case studies based on HT approaches, authentic 'big' data sets and analysis tools, and integrate them into their classrooms. Fellows will assess their new HT teaching tools across diverse educational settings and institutions, working with other Case Fellows and HT researchers both during the workshop and online using the QUBES hub

Case Fellows will receive a yearly stipend and support to attend two workshops. Our HITS 2022 workshop will be held, tentatively, May 23-25, 2022 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill.
