    Algorithmic Thinking: How you should be thinking about your data

    Semester: 

    Spring

    Offered: 

    2019

    The objective of this nanocourse is to encourage students to perform complex bioinformatic and data analysis questions in their own research with a modular and methodical approach. During the first day, students will learn what an algorithm is and be introduced to the concept of algorithmic thinking. Students will learn to take problems relevant to computational biology and craft solutions in the form of flowcharts and general pseudocode. On the second day, students will learn how to transform the flowcharts and general pseudocode into very specific pseudocode. In this second session,...

    Graduate TA Training in the Biomedical Sciences

    Semester: 

    Fall

    Offered: 

    2019

     

    This course is an introduction to the skills and frameworks necessary for success as a graduate student teaching assistant (TA). After completing this 6 hour introduction, students will be able to:

    - describe core pedagogy concepts including backwards design, formative assessment, active learning, alignment, and inclusive teaching

    - identify ways these core concepts influence their work as graduate student TAs

    - demonstrate the ability to apply these concepts to their expected teaching and course-related responsibilities

    General Quantitative Microscopy and Experimental Design

    Semester: 

    Fall

    Offered: 

    2019

    Light Microscopy is currently a widespread tool for scientific discovery. Advances in this field including the development of brighter and better dyes and fluorescent proteins and techniques that go beyond the optical resolution limit have shaped the way scientist do science. Furthermore, the inherent quantitative nature of light microscopy makes it a powerful tool to solve biological problems in both live and fixed samples and really goes beyond a pretty picture.
