BioQUEST Faculty Summer Workshop Emory University June 10 – 15, 2013
Ten Years After Using Data in the Classroom: Problem Based Approaches with Data, Tools, Simulation
Explore the use of problem spaces for fostering inquiry and data exploration, then join with a diverse community of innovative educators from several national projects including HHMI projects: Quantitative Biology and Numbers Count; NSF projects: PULSE, C3 Cyberlearning, Science Case Network RCN, and MathBench; as well as the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) and the Emory Center for Science Education during the overlapping event, the HHMI Quantitative Biology Conference.
Workshop Fees: Our $475 fee covers registration, housing, and all meals during the workshop. On campus housing is in a new dorm with individual rooms is provided for all participants from Sunday arrival through Saturday departure.
BioQUEST actively supports undergraduate biology education through collaborative development of open curricula in which students pose problems, solve problems, and engage in peer review.
- Take a look at the Plasmodium Problem Space to see data, tools, and investigative possibilities.
- The case Blind Spot (one way to get started) is currently being featured on Science Case Network.
- For an example of questions students can address, see Crisis at the Okapi Reserve.
