The aim of the LET Committee is to coordinate the development and sharing of best practice in teaching and learning methods, and to support bioinformatics trainers. This includes contributing to curriculum guidance, core competencies, trainer recognition, and developing a trainer-support platform.
This task force (TF) aims to develop a recognition process for courses and trainers. It has been collecting data on how training is recognised in scientific and business areas, how industry uses badges, and how the Open Badges project is being picked up in a systematic way through observation of the work of the Mozilla Open Badges development team.

The aim of this TF is to share experience within and outside GOBLET, and accumulate materials and examples of best practice for introducing bioinformatics to high-school teachers and to the public at large. One particular challenge related to this TF is that i) the material is often written in the native language of the country providing it, and ii) there is no universal school biology curriculum.

The aim of this TF is to support bioinformatics trainers at all levels of experience to develop professionally. The TF has conducted a survey and, to kick-start a process for sharing best practice on developing new trainers, a skills matrix had been circulated for comment. In addition, a resource kit is being developed to support existing trainers. Many of the projects listed below are being done together with the ELIXIR training community.

This TF aims to reach out to developing countries to see how we can support trainers and the development of courses. This includes helping with curriculum development, disseminating best practices, train-the-trainer programs and starting new degree programs in bioinformatics.
