Promoting Collaborative Learning and Problem Solving Skills

Collaborative International Undergraduate Workshop 2016: Quantitative Analysis of Behavior & Neurobiology  (August 1-6) 

It’s a collaborative educational project and my colleagues are from Harvard University, Stanford University, University of Edinburgh, Tokyo Institute of Technology, okinawa institute of science and technology (OIST), etc.

The objective of the workshop is to promote student collaborative learning and problem solving skills in an interdisciplinary context. The workshop includes several components, lectures on neuronal cell biology, physics, and quantitative methods, hands-on data collection, challenging labs, team problem solving and analysis sessions, and career panel discussion. I am leading the assessment team to evaluate the effectiveness of the workshop and help to improve the workshop.
