Topic: NIMBioS Discussions with Students on Quantitative Education in the Life Sciences
Meeting dates: Two sessions – January 19 at 1 p.m. and January 22 at 1 p.m.
Location: NIMBioS Interactive
Objective. With support from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, NIMBioS recently hosted a Workshop on Quantitative Education in Life Science Graduate Programs. One suggestion from this Workshop was to foster a discussion with current and recent students (advanced undergraduate, graduate students and postdocs) involved in the life sciences about their quantitative education experiences. The objective is to gather information and opinions regarding the current means by which students are obtaining quantitative training and comments about the benefits of alternative modes of learning. NIMBioS invites recent and current students to assist in the process of providing input on this by joining in on one or more conversations to be held in January 2021 several times using the Sococo platform in NIMBioS Interactive. The exact dates and times will be chosen in early January based on polls of the participants. These discussions will provide students an opportunity to share suggestions and to learn from the experiences of others about options to enhance their quantitative skills.
