GOBLET Talk at INCoB 2014 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/goblet-talk-at-incob-2014 Supporting Trainers to Improve Bioinformatics Education Globally Speaker: Dr. Michelle Brazas A needs assessment isn’t necessary to realize that across the globe, there is a high demand for quality bioinformatics training in all domains of life science. Delivering on this demand however is not trivial. In addition to computational infrastructure and software tools, quality bioinformatics training depends upon excellent trainers and training resources. With a focus on the trainer in the learning equation, the Global Organization for Bioinformatics Learning, Education and Training (GOBLET) aims to facilitate the advancement of bioinformatics education globally by training and supporting a network of bioinformatics trainers. Activities include coordinating training efforts, sharing data sets and teaching materials, discussing best practices and building up teaching standards and teaching recognition. Examples to improve your bioinformatics training programs were provided. Through support and development of trainer excellence, GOBLET is working to improve the global landscape in bioinformatics education. Goblet General Interest 2014-08-14 2017-10-09
