Computational Biology for Biology Educators
Topical — 2010
This workshop will introduce college faculty to various resources that can be used to prepare students to acquire computational thinking, modeling and quantitative analysis skills that have become essential to the practice of modern biology. Hands-on sessions with software for building and running dynamic models, and analyzing sequence and genomic data will be coupled with pedagogy and examples of integration into the biology classroom. Hands-on tutorials on first two days will focus on: agent-based and system dynamics modeling; stochastic simulation and phylogenetic analysis. A variety of tools will be introduced, from introductory to advanced. The focus will then shift to group work to develop materials for the classroom, with additional sessions based on participant interest.
