Exploring Global Health April 15-16, 2011

Computer Lab 8146 in the Science and Mathematics Building, #8

As science and technology advance, the rapid acquisition of data frames an evolving intersection between cyberlearning and science. Join us in the workshop as we:

  • Use online biomedical data, tools, image analysis, and bioinformatics

  • Explore contemporary problem solving in global health

  • Learn about the C3 Cyberlearning Project with a focus on social networking and productivity tools.

This workshop is funded by IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE).

    Is there any more specific information this BioQuest: Exploring Global Health on April 15/16? Specifically, what professionals will be attending? I am a high school science teacher (AP Biology, Human Anatomy & Physiology, and Pre-Med Society) at Jenks High School, and I use a great deal of online resources for my students, to include social networking sites to post calendars, discussions, files, etc. I attempt to use as much technology as is efficient and effective in the classroom.
    Would this workshop be applicable to my needs and daily activities in the classroom?

      Good questions, Sue.
      If you are interested in using social networking sites, adding productivity tools like Dropbox and Skype, exploring global health through data visualization with Gapminder, and supporting cyberlearners in the classroom with tools like ImageJ, then do join us.
      The two presenters are Ethel Stanley, Director of the BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium, and Kristin Jenkins, Outreach Coordinator from NESCent. Materials from the HHMI funded project Numbers Count and an investigative case on epidemiology using bioinformatics from Biological Inquiry (3e) that accompanies the Campbell and Reece Biology text will be featured.
      Please note the updated schedule for more details.
      Thanks for the inquiry!
