QUBES: Serenity Now! FMN

December 15, 2018

View the event website for more information.

Are you interested in developing student’s data science skills in your biology course? Apply now to join QUBES for a Spring 2019 Serenity Now! QUBES Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN).

Participants in this FMN will create data-driven modules in undergraduate life science courses using the software tools Radiant and Serenity. Radiant and Serenity are platform-independent browser-based interfaces to bring data science tools to the classroom, with a particular focus on data visualization, communication, and bridging students to R scripting skills. Accepted applicants will customize and implement newly designed educational modules from a wide range of topics using the Radiant and Serenity platforms. Participants are encouraged to use their own research or class-collected data for these modules. While doing this, they will participate in 1-hour biweekly virtual sessions to collaborate with and support others in the network and receive mentoring.

Applications are due December 15. Accepted applicants will be notified by December 21.

Space is limited, and the network is launching soon, so apply now!
