Workshop on Teaching Computation using MATLAB at Carleton College

Carleton College, Northfield, MN, together with MathWorks again invites science faculty and educators to a Developing Competency in Teaching Computation using MATLAB workshop at 15–17 October 2017. Two earlier workshops and associated webpages were discussed in an earlier post to this blog.

The workshop will bring together faculty from the sciences who teach computation and are interested in strengthening their skills and developing MATLAB-based teaching resources. Working interactively with faculty peers and MathWorks representatives, participants will develop teaching activities and contribute to a collection of sharable teaching activities.

By including educators from multiple disciplines – including Biology, Chemistry, Geoscience, Physics, Math, and allied fields – the workshop will encourage sharing of ideas and best practices and integration of themes and tools across areas.
