Dr. Rachel Penton, Teaching Assistant Professor, was named a High-throughput Discovery Science & Inquiry-based Case Studies for Today’s Students (HITS) Case Fellow.
The HITS network has the goal of training researchers and educators in data analysis and current trends in high-throughput (HT) experimentation and support the design and implementation of inquiry-based case studies using authentic HT data. Case Fellows are trained in the use of case studies based on HT data in an annual workshop. The HITS workshop will provide training to fellows so that they can work in groups to create case studies based on HT approaches, authentic ‘big’ data sets and analysis tools, and integrate them into their classrooms. Fellows will assess their new HT teaching tools across diverse educational settings and institutions, working with other fellows and HT researchers both during the workshop and online.
Congratulations, Dr. Penton!
