Praxis in Higher Education
Based on the success of Professor Feltus’ Clemson University course, our company (Praxis AI) has developed and delivered several ground-breaking digital programs using Praxis LXP. These programs are providing much-needed digital skills to challenged and diverse audiences, including climate science for agricultural resiliency, data science for contemporary employment, and health sciences to underserved American Indian populations.
In fact, Praxis AI has revolutionized science education at several prestigious universities, including Clemson University, Auburn University, Washington State University, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Through the U.S. higher education system, Praxis AI courses, platforms, and labs have delivered and credentialed bioinformatics, plant genomics, and data science skills to over 1,000 students in the past year.
Below is a summary of some of these programs:
- Auburn University Plant Genomics – a semester-length graduate-level digital course for research labs and education in Plant Genomics.
- Clemson University Medical Bioinformatics – the faculty of the College of Genetics and Biochemistry at Clemson University voted to promote Professor Feltus’ digital version of Medical Bioinformatics to all major students.
- AIHEC Aseto’ne Virtual Institute – the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) delivers NSF- and NIH-funded programs to 37 Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) throughout the United States. The Aseto’ne Virtual Institute is a health-oriented education and research program for TCU college students and faculty
- GSSM Digital Biology – the world-famous Governor’s School of Science and Mathematics (GSSM) adopted Professor’s Feltus’ Digital Biology course for high school students in South Carolina.
- AIHEC Advanced Manufacturing Program – ten digital courses over two semesters for TCU students and faculty to develop digital skills in advanced manufacturing technology, including designing and producing 3D-printed materials and houses.
- Bioinformatics and Data Science Workshops – Professor Feltus uses his version of Praxis LXP to deliver periodic data science and bioinformatics workshops to TCU students, TCU faculty, and members of the Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) ecosystem.
