BioInteractive Data Explorer: Reducing Barriers to Student Engagement with Data
To accommodate educators' schedules, this workshop will be offered twice. Workshop content will be the same at both sessions.
- Session 1: Tuesday, May 17, 4:00–5:30 PM EASTERN
- Session 2: Wednesday, June 8, 7:00–8:30 PM EASTERN
Note that the workshop time is in US Eastern time zone. Please verify the corresponding time in your local area.
Students often require scaffolding and support when learning how to summarize, analyze, and visualize data. In this workshop, participants will utilize HHMI BioInteractive’s Data Explorer, a free web tool that allows students to collect, organize, and visualize their own data. Participants will have the opportunity to consider and discuss how to use Data Explorer with their students, including strategies to increase students' confidence and reduce barriers to students accessing data. Participants will also leave the session with a template for designing their own classroom data exploration activity.
This workshop is intended for educators who teach any level of high school biology, including introductory and advanced (AP, IB, etc.) courses, and undergraduate educators who teach at 2- or 4-year institutions. Facilitators will model strategies for in-person instruction.
- The workshop will be hosted via Zoom meeting.
- Our workshops actively engage participants and often feature small group work in breakout rooms to build community, foster discussion, and model classroom practice.
- Workshop attendees will receive a certificate of participation and access to the free BioInteractive resources modeled in the workshop.
Live transcript will be available in the main Zoom meeting room. If you require live transcription in the breakout rooms, or any other accommodations in order to fully participate in the workshop, please indicate this on the registration form.
