In future collect numerical answers for the questions. Everyone could choose "most interested" so there is no ranking. About a third of the people for learning styles choose most interested. Perhaps could choose ranking in future.
No method of learning preferred, everyone choose all the same methods.
Have to provide the data in different ways.
How we pursue the training may depend on how which topic is being given.
We can wait to see what methods and in-house resources we have for this.
Everyone provide comments and suggestions on Kecia's progress
Mike Barton - create three follow up meetings for prior to the all-hands meeting
Notes / Minutes
Observations from the survey results:
Visualize and stats -- these are two sides of the same coin. 71% of respondents want better consistent data visualization (JMP or R) ; 51% want to have a better understanding of the maths and stats.
There are too many disparate data sources. There is duplication between data sources. It is not clear where/what to query for data. It would be great to have a single API that provides a view of all data sources.
JAMO has missing data very often -- it is very confusing when values are missing.
Reproducibility (and documentation): how to repeat JAMO queries? How to reproduce analyses? Instead of resorting to hacks for querying JAMO, which may change from one time to another, it would be better to have a reproducible way to query JAMO.
Documentation: it seems that there is a culture at JGI to go ask the "expert" on a subject every time something is needed. There needs to be a way to document the knowledge. An expert source (wiki) of knowledge is needed where knowledge is documented and people can go to for answers and reproducing their queries.
