Course design: Considerations for trainers – a Professional Guide http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/course-design-considerations-for-trainers-a-professional-guide This Professional Guide in the Resources for Training Trainers series introduces a structured approach to course design, highlighting the importance of articulating learning outcomes commensurate with the cognitive complexity of the target learning, prior to devising learning experiences and course content. The specific focus here is on face-to-face activities, but the guidance is also relevant for those designing online courses.

Interpreting Phylogenies http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/interpreting-phylogenies Content for a one-day course delivered in April 2013 at the University of Cambridge, together with Sarah Parks, Cilia Antoniou, and Adrian Friday. Uses examples taken from several published papers to explore some of the assumptions and concepts we use when presenting and interpreting phylogenetic trees. Includes exercises on visulaising and manipulating trees using Dendroscope and NJplot to reinforce some of these ideas, while also providing a very basic overview of steps involved in a generic phylogenetic analysis.
