• Develop an international open access repository of materials that can be tailored to and adapted for the local context, perhaps as a network of national or regional repositories.
The repository should be under the auspices of the scientific community rather than governments, although support and resources from governments will be needed to implement the education locally.
Materials should be available in a range of languages.
Materials should interface with existing databases and repositories of educational materials dedicated to science education.
Additional case studies to address broader segments of the life sciences community should be developed, with a focus on making the case studies relevant to the student/researcher.
• Design methods for commenting and vetting of materials by the community (such as an appropriately monitored Wikipedia model) so they can be improved by faculty, instructors and experts in science education.
• Build networks of faculty and instructors through train-the-trainer programs, undertaking this effort if possible in cooperation with scientific unions and professional societies and associations.
• Develop a range of methods to assess outcomes and, where possible, impact. These should include qualitative approaches as well as quantitative measures, for example, of learning outcomes.
