The NIBLSE Learning Resource Collection is actively soliciting bioinformatics materials appropriate for undergraduate students. Materials used for advanced high school courses, or for introductory graduate courses may also be appropriate.
The learning resources you submit do not need to be "publication ready" but they should be developed enough to be accessible to a community of interested faculty. If your materials are accepted into an incubator you will have the chance to work collaboratively to refine and enrich the materials - making them more accessible to the teaching community at large. We expect that after incubation many of the learning resources will be good candidates for inclusion in the CourseSource bioinformatics collection.
At this time, the NIBLSE-RRC is soliciting our colleagues for bioinformatics instructional materials to be included in the incubator. Some examples of desired learning materials include computational exercises, case studies, multi-week “laboratory” modules, PowerPoint presentations, and instructional videos.
Learning resources should advance the goal of integrating bioinformatics essentials into undergraduate life science education as elaborated in the Core Competencies. Submitted materials could be appropriate for a stand-alone introductory bioinformatics course or for integration into biology courses either at the introductory, intermediate, or advanced level.
Learning Resource: You will need to submit an electronic copy the material to be included in the incubator. A MS Word document (or other easily edited format) is preferred because it will be easier to revise and adapt. However, PDFs or links to online resources are also acceptable.
Notes for use of the Learning Resource: Submit any teaching notes, including instructions on classroom management, background readings for instructors, or links to external resources. Again, a Word document is preferred, but PDFs are acceptable.
You will be asked to upload your files after completing the online submission form. If possible please create a zip file archive if you have multiple documents to upload.
Following submission, at least two reviewers will evaluate each resource using our Learning Object Review Instrument (LORI) to ensure that:
Following this review, the submitted learning resource will be:
