Faculty computational science education workshops!

Mon, 2016-03-28

The XSEDE project is pleased to announce the opening of registrations for faculty computational science education workshops for 2016. There are no fees for participating in the workshops. The workshops also cover local accommodations and food during the workshop hours for those outside of commuting distance to the host sites.

This year there are three workshops at various locations focused on Inquiry-Based Science and Mathematics Enhanced by Computational Thinking and one workshop on the LittleFe Curriculum Module Buildout. The computational thinking workshops are hosted at Oklahoma State University on May 16-18, 2016, at Boise State University on July 18-20, 2016, and at West Virginia State University on August 1-3. The Little Fe curriculum workshop will be held on June 20-22 at Shodor Education Foundation.

To register for the workshop, go to http://computationalscience.org/workshops2016 and begin the registration process by clicking on the Register through XSEDE button for the relevant workshop. Participants will be asked to create an XSEDE portal account if they do not yet have one. Following that registration, participants will be directed back to http://computationalscience.org/workshops2016 to provide additional information on their background and travel plans.

A limited number of travel scholarships may also be available as reimbursements for receipted travel to more distant faculty interested in attending the workshops. The scholarships will provide partial or full reimbursement of travel costs to and from the workshops. Preference will be given to faculty from institutions that are formally engaged with the XSEDE education program and to those who can provide some matching travel funds. Recipients are expected to be present for the full workshop. The travel scholarship application is available via http://computationalscience.org/login?came_from=/scholarship.
