With funding provided by the National Science Foundation through the XSEDE program, with additional funds from NCSI, there is no fee to attend any NCSI/XSEDE workshop this year.
Meals and breaks during workshop hours will be provided to all participants (other meals typically not provided).
While most participants are expected to be within commuting distance of the workshop location, a limited number of spaces in each workshop will be available for those traveling to a workshop from a greater distance and who would need housing. For those accepted to a workshop, this housing (double occupancy) will be provided at no cost to the participant. Those requesting single occupancy will be responsible for the difference.
Subject to funding, a limited number of travel scholarships may also be available as reimbursements for receipted travel to more distant faculty interested in attending the workshops. The scholarships will provide partial or full reimbursement of travel costs to and from the workshops. Preference will be given to faculty from institutions that are formally engaged with the XSEDE education program and to those who can provide some matching travel funds. Recipients are expected to be present for the full workshop. Those interested in a travel scholarship should complete the scholarship application, which can be submitted after you apply for the workshop and is available from the page where you review your application.
All other incidental expenses will be paid by participants.
Computational Chemistry for Chemistry Educators
This workshop will cover various ways that computers can be used to enhance and expand the educational experience of students enrolled in the undergraduate chemistry curriculum. Discussions and hands-on laboratory exercises on visualization, simulation, molecular modeling, and mathematical software will be presented.
Jun 15 - Jun 19
Grand Rapids, MI
The workshop is scheduled to begin Monday, June 15 at 10 AM and will finish by Noon on Friday, June 19. The workshop will formally complete each day at 6 PM with an optional evening session for hands-on work.
This workshop aims to expose participants to and inspire them with new techniques, teaching materials, and applications to use computational models in the undergraduate curriculum. By bringing faculty and teachers from different disciplines together so that they can learn how to incorporate computational models into their classrooms and research projects, it will advance the use of computing in undergraduate science education. We desire to have participants from a broad range of disciplines, including computer science, mathematics, and the physical and life sciences.
Jun 22 - Jun 26
St. Joseph College Patchogue Long Island, NY
The workshop consists of interactive explorations and hands-on exercises from Monday morning through Wednesday afternoon. The content will explore new techniques, teaching materials, and applications using computational models in the undergraduate curriculum, but also adaptable for secondary teachers. The workshop goal is to form collaborations between faculty and teachers from different disciplines so that they can learn to incorporate computational models into classroom and research projects to advance the use of computing in undergraduate science education, mathematics, and physical, life and sciences. Instructors also will be available for consultation on Thursday for individual help on building specific models and for working on lesson plans ideas and implementations. . . .
