Accelerating Curricular Transformation in the Computational Molecular Sciences Faculty Fellowship

The Molecular Sciences Software Institute (MolSSI) is pleased to announce the launch of a new education and faculty development program: Accelerating Curricular Transformation in the Computational Molecular Sciences (ACT-CMS). The goal of ACT-CMS is to transform science curricula by accelerating the integration of programming and computation into existing molecular science courses through faculty training and the development of open and reusable curricular modules.

ACT-CMS will achieve this goal by providing faculty with the training and resources needed to integrate programming and computation into their existing courses. ACT-CMS is generously funded by the National Science Foundation Training-based Workforce Development for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure program (OAC 2321044,OAC 2321045).

For more information about the ACT-CMS fellowship program, please visit the ACT-CMS website.

We are please to announces the first class of faculty fellows!

Congratulations to our first class of MolSSI Faculty Fellows! These molecular science educators will be working with the MolSSI for the next two years to integrate programming, data competency, and computing into their curriculum. This inaugural group of ACT-CMS Fellows will be spending a week with us next month during their Curriculum Development Bootcamp!
