Sunday, January 26th, 2014

8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Arnold & Mabel Beckman Center,

100 Academy, Irvine, CA 92617

The workshop is designed to broadly appeal to and solicit active input/feeback from educators and researchers across a wide range of career stages and tracks. We welcome active participation from program administrators, faculty, teachers, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students or others with vested interests in Systems Biology education and training.
Please indicate during on-line registration your preferences for your participating role and any volunteer task.
The primary goal of the workshop will be articulating and disseminating strategies for effective Systems Biology education.
The workshop will consist of a mix of oral presentations, panel discussions and small group sessions that will address some of the following questions and topics: 
        • What preparation do students need ?
        • What is the best way to remedy individual academic deficiencies ?
        • Is there a common technical skill set that all students should have ?
        • How to balance breadth and depth in interdisciplinary training ?
        • How should collaboration skills be taught ?
        • What are hurdles involved in developing new courses in Systems Biology, and how should they be overcome ?
        • Can/should problem-based-learning be used ?
        • Should Systems Biology be explicity taught at the undergraduate level ?
        • What are the pros and cons of short-term focused training activities (bootcamps and short courses) ?
The output from the workshop will consist of summary statements and shared educational tools (videos, white papers and teaching materials) made freely available via internet access.
