Spring 2020 FMN Announcement: Make Teaching with R in Undergraduate Biology Less Excruciating (Make TRUBLE)
Make Teaching with R in Undergraduate Biology Less Excruciating
Applications Due: December 6, 2019
This Faculty Mentoring Network is intended for undergraduate biology instructors with prior R programming experience who are interested in learning ways to teach with R effectively to students with little to no programming experience. Participants will focus on developing, implementing, and sharing modules for teaching statistical and biological concepts in R with Swirl. Swirl lessons simplify the R learning process by providing a guided, interactive experience through on-screen prompts and exercises which students answer directly in the RStudio console. Participants will learn the Swirl program, implement one existing Swirl lesson, contribute one new lesson and will leave the FMN with ready-to-use Swirl lessons covering diverse biology and data analysis concepts. Apply by December 6, 2019. Please visit https://qubeshub.org/groups/make_truble2020 for more information and to apply.
