Cait Pickens on the Scripps Institute Bootcamp

Cait Pickens (a grad student from Michigan State University) has written a great series of posts about the bootcamp she helped teach at the Scripps Institute a couple of weeks ago:

  1. Preparation
  2. Day 1, Part 1
  3. Day 1, Part 2
  4. Day 2, Part 1
  5. Day 2, Part 2
  6. Day 2, Part 3

She also has a post describing how they used HipChat in the classroom, which is almost what I think we need to do peer instruction online. There's lots of good stuff to think about here—recommended.
