Big data handling is essential in modern Biology education. Existing curricula suffer from gaps between 1) traditional analysis method and modern computationally-intensive data handling, 2) the young and older generation’s learning styles, and 3) school laboratory facility and big data creation requirement. In order to bridge the gaps, supported by a Comenius teaching fellowship, we built an education scheme covering from big data creation to analysis. We embedded a novel side-by-side learning strategy during the learning process. The innovations were carried out by an interactive scheme based on “train-the-trainers” model. The project resulted in a practical infrastructure which can effectively implement big data in life science education.
