  • European Galaxy Administrator Workshop

    8 - 12 January 2018

    Oslo, Norway

    European Galaxy Administrator Workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/european-galaxy-administrator-workshop Participants will learn how to install, configure, customize, and extend their own Galaxy servers. Topics include tool configuration, authentication and user management, using heterogeneous storage and compute services, and many other topics that will enable you to get your own Galaxy server up and running, performing well, and used by your community. Have a look at the programme below to see more details on the planned content of the workshop. Maximum number of participants is limited to 30, and we will manage registrations to allow for geographical distribution and proritize participants with responsibility of administrating galaxy servers. After registering you will get a second confirmation if/when a slot has been allocated to you. Although located in Europe, and named to reflect this, the workshop is definitely open to a world-wide audience. The workshop is a result of the collaboration between the Elixir Galaxy WG and the Galaxy Project, and so far known, this is the only Galaxy Admin workshop planned for 2018.  Participants are to cover their own travel and accomodation, while the workshop participation is free of charge.  Local venue map: https://www.uio.no/english/about/getting-around/areas/gaustad/ga06/ 2018-01-08 09:00:00 UTC 2018-01-12 00:00:00 UTC Blindern, UiO campus, Ole Johan Dahls hus, Oslo, Norway Blindern, UiO campus, Ole Johan Dahls hus Oslo Norway [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • Train the Trainer Workshop: From knowledge, skills and abilities to learning paths: developing mastery rubrics for training

    24 November 2017

    Portugal

    Train the Trainer Workshop: From knowledge, skills and abilities to learning paths: developing mastery rubrics for training https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/train-the-trainer-workshop-from-knowledge-skills-and-abilities-to-learning-paths-developing-mastery-rubrics-for-training During this workshop, we will present recent work to construct a mastery rubric for bioinformatics, and will describe how such a tool may be utilised in the development of training courses and learning assessment. We will begin by discussing knowledge, skills and abilities in bioinformatics, focusing on how we can map the performance of such ‘competencies’ to career stages and learning paths. We will demonstrate how the outcome of such mapping - a mastery rubric - becomes a tool that can be then used by trainers to develop training solutions and assess learners’ progression. Participants will have the opportunity to practice how to develop a mastery rubric that they can later apply in their work. The Workshop is taking place as a satellite event to the GOBLET AGM meeting on 22-24 November 2017 in Oeiras, Portugal. 2017-11-24 09:00:00 UTC 2017-11-24 00:00:00 UTC Portugal Portugal [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
