2 TEOS GoalsPrepare 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.
3 Training Goals Strategic: Meet the broader TEOS Goals Tactical: 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 sitesCreate an internal repository to promote sharing of materials and reduce redundancy.
4 Training Goals - Specific Proposal Goals:In-person events: 50 per year.New online content: 10 modules per yearMy expectation: we will exceed this by nearly 2-1 (on pace for 85+ live events this year).
5 Training - Structurally Administratively, training resides in the User Services portion of XSEDEInsure tight integration with user support activitiesPhilosophically, training aligns with TEOSCoordination with education efforts, e.g. content tagging and shared banks of materials.Practically, most of the labor comes from AUSSSubject Matter Experts reside there.
6 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 alreadyCentralized training calendar in place, registration portal under development
7 TEOS Overall – Scott Lathrop Training - Dan TEOS Area LeadsTEOS Overall – Scott LathropTraining - DanEducation – Steve Gordon, OSCOutreach – Laura McGinnis, PSCCampus Bridging – Craig Stewart, IndianaE&O Infrastructure – Jim Ferguson, NICSEvaluation – Edee Wiziecki, NCSATailored needs – iPlant, Champions,Coordination with other providers – avoid duplication of effort, expand breadth of content
8 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 effortsPSC will lead Outreach effortsSURA will engage MSI faculty and students.Richard Tapia;’s team (Rice) will engage under-represented communitiesPurdue will lead Campus Champions Program for XSEDE and OSGIndiana University will coordinate Campus Bridging effortsNICS will lead TEOS infrastructure effortsTACC will lead training effortsCornell University will provide online training materials.UIUC I-STEM will be the external evaluator.SURA - (Southeastern Universities Research Association)SURA - One research team is considering moving applications from NERSC to TeraGrid because of the simplicity of the Longhorn User Portal would allow more rapid incorporation of studentsSURA – visualization workshopsWorking with NOAAManaging the accounts for the project team membersProviding initial technical support to modeling groups for moving models to Queen Bee and Ranger
9 TEOS Strategies to Expand National Impact Provide a smooth Transition from TeraGridExpand scope and scale of content, delivery method and audienceInstitutional incorporation of CS&E curricula to prepare undergrads, grads and future teachersCampus bridging for effective use of CI resourcesBroaden participation among new and under-represented communitiesLeverage strong partnershipsConduct On-going Needs Assessment to Improve Services and Measure ImpactPartnerships – iPlant, Blue Waters, Sigma Xi, CCSC, ICLCS, etc.
10 XSEDE Improvements on TeraGrid Training willoffer more quality content to address user needs to expand scope,delivery more training synchronously and asynchronously to expand scale, andoffer new “Train the Trainers” program to expand scale.Education willoffer curriculum development workshops synchronously,work with institutions to offer CS&E Certificate and Degree Programs, andimmerse students in training, internships, mentoring and recognition programs.Outreach willwork 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 campusesEvaluation will be integrated from the outsetHave deliberately not saturated budgetCommit for year at a time to retain flexibility to respond as needs change
11 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.NCSA, NICS, PSC and TACC have to date reached about 2,600 people per year through live/sync events, and over 6,000 people through async resourcesWe project the numbers will increase within XSEDE with more sync/async delivery and more and well trained Champions and campus bridging
12 Training/Event Portal XSEDE Training/event online enrollment formA central place to allow users to enroll in any XSEDE training class: Simplify the user experienceAlso 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.
13 A couple of coming attractions from other areas: Outreach: XSEDE Student Interns programEmbed 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
14 XSEDE Event Registration Portal Distributed management, role-based accessAny 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 coursesLink to records about each user.Link training attended to user profile, allocations, ticket requests, etc.
