There have been numerous reports over the last 30 years that document the critical need for a larger and more diverse computational, data-enabled and HPC workforce in all fields of study across all sectors of society. There are many efforts underway to provide people with opportunities to learn topics in these fields that are not normally available at their own institutions. These informal learning approaches do not address the basic challenges that these opportunities are not offered at far too many institutions, course curricula are not keeping pace with technological advancements, and far too many students lack the formal education they need to be competitive in the HPC workforce. This BoF will provide a platform for discussion of effective online educational strategies and what is needed to scale up and improve on past efforts.
