Biodiversity Informatics Training Curriculum: Status Report

Town Peterson will give an overview of the Biodiversity Informatics Training Curriculum and related digital resources for biodiversity informatics, based on in-person teaching captured digitally and shared globally via the Internet. The BITC has now nearly completed its first pass of relevant themes in the field of biodiversity informatics, and will finish the basic set of topics as of the end of 2015. The video resources now total to more than 500 videos that have been organized into a coherent and cohesive curriculum. 

This seminar serves as a status report. However, it also aims to start a conversation about (1) other topics that could and should be treated in the BITC program, and (2) next steps that could be suggested in terms of a direction for the program. Finally, the BITC has the potential to initiate an international certificate program or even a masters degree program, based on the online digital materials; this talk aims to stimulate discussion of the ideal dimensions of such programs.

Note that this month's event will take place on Friday rather than Thursday, owing to complications in the presenter's schedule. It will begin at 0900 Central Time (= Chicago time).
