Description

Faculty training in bioinformatics remains a barrier for implementation in the classroom. In efforts to address this barrier, Genome Solver (GS) began in 2011 as an NSF-funded project for faculty training in basic web-based bioinformatics skills. From 2011 through 2017, faculty were trained in face-to-face workshops that included instruction in tools for data mining, homology searches, multiple sequence alignments, phylogeny construction, and network analysis, as well as pedagogy for active learning.  We studied the impact GS workshops had on faculty willingness to include bioinformatics content in their courses and the impact of bioinformatics instruction on student performance. Our results suggests that bioinformatics training workshops can be an effective means of encouraging faculty to engage in bioinformatics instruction, which in turn, positively influences student learning.
