Welcome to Week 2

Week 2 educators welcome you and introduce you to this week’s learning
Hi, and welcome to week two. My name is Ben Moore, and I am the Outreach Manager for the Ensembl genome browser. In this week’s activities, we will explore a number of case studies to learn and reflect on the different techniques used to design, deliver, and evaluate training programmes outlined in week one. Hi, my name is Monica Abrudan, and I am bioinformatician studying pathogen genomics. This week, we will hear from trainers that cover a wide palette of topics related to genomics. We want you to reflect on their examples and think about how you can adopt and develop your ideas to design your own training event in Week 3.
It is important to remember that while these case studies exemplify key steps, no two-training courses are alike. So it is important to fully engage with each step of the design process when you are developing a new training event. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on these interviews and related experiences from your practice.

Week 2 educators welcome you and introduce you to this week’s learning

In Week 2, you will hear from professional trainers on how they apply pedagogical concepts explained in Week 1, to design and deliver their training courses, on various topics, such as the Ensembl Genome Browser, Machine Learning, Statistical genetics and Genomic Epidemiology. Some of the pedagogy topics emphasised in Week 2 are related to course context, activity design, course assessment and evaluation. We invite you to listen carefully and engage with colleague learners in the discussion steps.
