Birds of a Feather
TimeWednesday, November 15th5:15pm - 7pm
DescriptionThe HPC community has consistently identified public outreach and education of new and existing community members as vital to the growth of the field. New strategies and alternative teaching methods are needed, not only to improve access, promote diversity and attract new HPC practitioners, but also to encourage the next generation of scientists and gain the support of the general public. To help improve education and outreach efforts, this BoF will host an interactive discussion, demonstrations of existing training and outreach activities, and examination of alternative teaching approaches such as MOOCs and virtual workshops. Come and try them for yourself!
