Data Acquisition and Experiment Techniques Course for Life Sciences
Department of Basic Sciences, Bastyr University
Kenmore, WA USA
Educators and researchers in the biological sciences who wish to broaden their student and/or experiment data acquisition computing skills will discover expert educator training at this unique training event. Host Bastyr University will provide everything needed for a first rate educational experience. Attendee access to a first-rate laboratory training facility coupled with top notch instructors will provide the perfect environment for strengthening your critical data acquisition software and hardware skills. Plenty of time is provided for a pace of learning that matches each individual’s needs. The course agenda is structured to allow attendees to learn at their preferred pace while keeping to an intensive learning schedule. Our unique approach ensures you get the attention you need, irrespective of your experience level or that of any other attendee.
Attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of the major components needed to setup and effectively manage both student and research data workflow at the lab bench. Learning-by-doing amongst dedicated trainers and your colleagues is the quickest method by which to master curriculum, equipment and experimental variables. Exposing yourself to the wide range of biological applications discussed during this course will extend the learning opportunities back home. Attendees can expect hands-on training sessions designed to develop primary and secondary skill sets, along with dedicated sessions focusing on course management and curriculum development. Participants will be guided through the latest advances in ADInstruments software toolsets for recording, visualizing and analyzing data sets.
Who Should Attend
This workshop is a must attend course for educators and researchers looking to polish their computer-based data recording and analysis. Researchers will discover immediate returns on their investment with us, learning the shortcuts and best practices for acquiring and processing data. Also a perfect match for all two and four-year life science educators seeking a structured, intensive program to quickly master paired student LabChart and LabTutor experiments with a PowerLab system. Those new to data acquisition, novice users looking to build a larger repertoire of flexible student experiments, as well as experienced PowerLab veterans needing a refresher course, will find tremendous return on their time spent at this unique course offering.
Three full days divided into session blocks allow for a well-paced introduction to LabChart, and ADInstruments software for education balanced instructional approach including background/theory, experiment demonstrations, dedicated hands-on bench time and troubleshooting discussion provides a well rounded and engaging experience. Course agenda is subject to change based on the collective interests of course attendees. Requests for specific demonstrations and instruction can be suggested when completing the registration form. June 17th will be a mindfulness all-day retreat during which we will perform physiological recording on volunteer, novice and experienced practitioners of mindfulness.
