Focused Workshop on Quantitative Education

Sponsored by:

Focused Workshop on Quantitative Education for Graduate Students

Facilitated by Dr. Rebecca Garabed

Methods for organizing, analyzing and explaining the complex data that are generated in infectious disease research are changing daily. To offer Ohio State graduate students in biomedical, biological, environmental, and social sciences the best and most current education and build confidence for students to continue to learn and develop new methods for the rest of their careers, we need a highly flexible curriculum that can be tailored for students from diverse disciplines and backgrounds. This series of breakfasts/lunches discussions scheduled for Monday-Thursday (July 17-20) is for faculty, staff and students involved in graduate education for students working in all aspects of infectious disease research (and other related disciplines) to come together and sketch out what this curriculum should look like. On Friday, July 21, the group will schedule sessions to make sample teaching modules (record lectures and make assessments to go with them). Exact attendees at different times will be flexible.

All are welcome, but registration is capped at each session to facilitate discussion
