Building a Gateway Between Classrooms and Data Science Using QUBESHub

posted on 29.10.2017, 18:37 by M. Drew LaMar, Sam Donovan
This paper addresses the gap between the practice of biological science and biology education as it pertains to data science and quantitative literacy, and the role that educational gateways can play in closing that gap. We discuss general opportunities and challenges for educational gateways, including those specific to bringing data science to the undergraduate classroom. We then introduce a free open-source web application currently under active development called Serenity, which is being designed to address these opportunities and challenges. Serenity will be deployed on the education gateway QUBES (Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis, https://qubeshub.org).
