Application of project-based learning in a training workshop provides an opportunity to explore methods and strategies that can be adapted to solve real-world data analysis problems.

This presentation will discuss how EMBL-EBI training designs live courses that allow participants to explore bioinformatics tools and resources introduced earlier in the course and to apply these to a set problem, providing hands-on experience of relevance to their own research. It will provide a case study from a workshop to highlight the process of group project development, its application and facilitation during a course, and feedback from students.
