(Originally posted in the INFORMS 2017 blog).
Jill Wilson, the VP for Education, lead the first meeting of the newly created Education Strategy Committe this morning. The goal of this committe is to oversee the activities of the other education committes and think strategically about how our efforts are supporting INFORMS goals.
Do you have any ideas about information or resources that INFORMS could help develop or centralize?
Do you have suggestions for initiatives that INFORMS could support in order to promote better educational practices in Operations Research, Management Science, and Advanced Analytics?
Is there anything that we currently do, but that could be done better somehow?
I am serving as the student member of the committe and I am looking forward to know what other students think on the topic. As TAs, first-time instructors, and potentially future faculty, our input is crucial for better educating the next generation of analytics professionals.
