Educator Resources Overview
The resources here provided are a distillation of the learning elements of the online course “Planning Your Scientific Journey.” Our goal is to make it easy to access and use the course’s videos, video transcripts, infographics, term sheet, assessments, and discussion questions. We encourage educators to use some or all of the materials for their training.
We have developed an Educator Guide that is meant to demonstrate how iBiology’s online course “Planning Your Scientific Journe” (PYSJ) can be used in multiple settings to assist when teaching experimental design. You can download the guide by clicking the blue button in the table above.
“Planning Your Scientific Journey” Brief Overview
Being successful as a scientist requires more than acquiring knowledge and developing experimental skills. It also requires: (1) asking a good scientific question, (2) establishing a clear plan of action, and (3) seeking advice along the way. These three topics are the focus of this course “Planning Your Scientific Journey,” which is aimed primarily at life science graduate and undergraduate students, but also useful for postdocs, staff scientists, and others who could benefit from learning or reviewing these topics.
