    General comments: A workshop series would be really good, but a reading group would be worthless, for e.g. seminal papers are bunk – need hands-0n application. Needs to be more than “here are the papers”, needs to be actual analysis of data with examples and problem sets etc. Call in some other people to teach individual sections. Should be a course, not an ad-hoc reading group. Format of science teaching journal club: read stuff one week, teach or use stuff the next week. Must be a real course, take a lot of work.

    Adjourn
