May 9, 2015 XSEDE Training Dan Stanzione, Training lead CASC Meeting
TEOS Goals Prepare the current and next generation of researchers, educators and practitioners. Create a significantly larger and more diverse workforce in STEM. Inculcate the use of digital services as part of their routine practice for advancing scientific discovery.
Training Goals Strategic: Meet the broader TEOS Goals –Prepare the current and next generation of researchers, educators and practitioners. –Create a significantly larger and more diverse workforce in STEM. –Inculcate the use of digital services as part of their routine practice for advancing scientific discovery. Tactical: –Expand the scope/scale of training through expanded use of distance learning, new topics, etc. –Create a simpler user experience through a single portal for all training at all sites –Create an internal repository to promote sharing of materials and reduce redundancy.
Training Goals - Specific Proposal Goals: –In-person events: 50 per year. –New online content: 10 modules per year My expectation: we will exceed this by nearly 2-1 (on pace for 85+ live events this year).
Training - Structurally Administratively, training resides in the User Services portion of XSEDE – Insure tight integration with user support activities Philosophically, training aligns with TEOS – Coordination with education efforts, e.g. content tagging and shared banks of materials. Practically, most of the labor comes from AUSS – Subject Matter Experts reside there. 5
Transition and Roll Out More than 20 courses have/will run in the first quarter of the project (two webcasts next week). Hundreds of users have received training already (more than 250 in one course. More emphasis on online training showing already Centralized training calendar in place, registration portal under development 6
TEOS Area Leads TEOS Overall – Scott Lathrop Training - Dan Education – Steve Gordon, OSC Outreach – Laura McGinnis, PSC Campus Bridging – Craig Stewart, Indiana E&O Infrastructure – Jim Ferguson, NICS Evaluation – Edee Wiziecki, NCSA
TEOS is an Established Collaborative Team NCSA, NICS, PSC, SDSC, TACC are leaders in TEOS efforts. The Ralph Regula School (OSC) will lead education efforts. Shodor will conduct undergraduate education efforts. UC Berkeley will conduct graduate education efforts PSC will lead Outreach efforts SURA will engage MSI faculty and students. Richard Tapia;’s team (Rice) will engage under-represented communities Purdue will lead Campus Champions Program for XSEDE and OSG Indiana University will coordinate Campus Bridging efforts NICS will lead TEOS infrastructure efforts TACC will lead training efforts Cornell University will provide online training materials. UIUC I-STEM will be the external evaluator.
TEOS Strategies to Expand National Impact Provide a smooth Transition from TeraGrid Expand scope and scale of content, delivery method and audience Institutional incorporation of CS&E curricula to prepare undergrads, grads and future teachers Campus bridging for effective use of CI resources Broaden participation among new and under- represented communities Leverage strong partnerships Conduct On-going Needs Assessment to Improve Services and Measure Impact 9
XSEDE Improvements on TeraGrid Training will –offer more quality content to address user needs to expand scope, –delivery more training synchronously and asynchronously to expand scale, and –offer new “Train the Trainers” program to expand scale. Education will –offer curriculum development workshops synchronously, –work with institutions to offer CS&E Certificate and Degree Programs, and –immerse students in training, internships, mentoring and recognition programs. Outreach will –work with campus staff to bridge between campuses and XSEDE resources, –expand Campus Champions Program to reach more campuses and users, –provide in-depth support to develop research projects among new users and under-represented communities. Campus Bridging will coordinate infrastructure coordination efforts among XSEDE and campuses Evaluation will be integrated from the outset
Integrated XSEDE Services TEOS will directly benefit more than 2,500 people per year through live and synchronous training and education events, and more than 6,000 people through delivery of asynchronous content. TEOS will reach significantly more people through outreach awareness raising sessions.
Training/Event Portal XSEDE Training/event online enrollment form – A central place to allow users to enroll in any XSEDE training class: Simplify the user experience – Also usable by any other event. – A central place for us to track and report all the information about attendees for these events. Showing UI mockup today, production in October. 12
A couple of coming attractions from other areas: Outreach: XSEDE Student Interns program – Embed students at the XSEDE sites. – Funded internships for summer or semester. – Recruiting materials by SC11; ask Laura for more details. Education: – Searchable tagged repository of educational materials. – XSEDE Curriculum program 13
XSEDE Event Registration Portal Distributed management, role-based access – Any SP can create a new course, customize registration forms and user communications, retrieve class roll information at any time. – Training administrators can query across courses for a program wide view. – Users can see their list of courses Link to records about each user. – Link training attended to user profile, allocations, ticket requests, etc. 14
