Hands-on, simulated, and remote laboratories

Jing Ma, Jeffrey V. Nickerson
2006 ACM Computing Surveys  
Automation is changing the nature of these laboratories, and there is a long-running debate about the value of hands-on versus simulated laboratories.  ...  The debate over different technologies is confounded by the use of different educational objectives as criteria for judging the laboratories: Hands-on advocates emphasize design skills, while remote lab  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We wish to thank the principle investigator of our NSF-sponsored research project, Sven Esche, and our coinvestigators, Constantin Chassapis and James Corter.  ...

Hands-on training about overfitting

Janez Demšar, Blaž Zupan
2021 PLoS Computational Biology  
We use workflow-based design of machine learning pipelines, experimentation-based teaching, and hands-on approach that focuses on concepts rather than underlying mathematics.  ...  With machine learning becoming an essential technology in computational biology, we must include training about overfitting in all courses that introduce this technology to students and practitioners.  ...  Approach The lecture we propose here was designed to comply with a structured pedagogical approach, requires a specific data science platform, and uses hands-on training.  ...
