Workshop Outcomes

The following collections of materials were submitted by faculty participants at the 2016 Teaching Computation in the Sciences Using MATLAB workshop. The collections include MATLAB activities that get students analyzing data sets, creating visualizations, and using models. See the workshop synthesis to learn more about the workshop.

Teaching Activities

In association with our October 2016 workshop, participants provided activities that show of how they incorporate computation using MATLAB. These have been organized into a browsable collection.

Workshop Synthesis

Key ideas from the workshop are summarized in the workshop synthesis. This page focuses on the role of computation in undergraduate science courses, crosscutting computational learning outcomes, models for helping students develop computational skills, and strategies and resources to help faculty incorporate computation using MATLAB into their courses and degree programs.

Pedagogical Resources

The following pages are built around concepts that were generated in presentations, discussions, and breakout groups at the workshop, and include pedagogic guidance as well as related materials drawn from On the Cutting Edge and other projects across the SERC website.
