BioQUEST actively supports undergraduate biology education through the collaborative development of open curricula in which students pose problems, solve problems, and engage in peer review.
Count the Ways: Engaging Students in Quantitative Biology Applications
The BioQUEST Summer 2015 Workshop will be held June 13th-20th at the Claremont Colleges in California. Join us as we use quantitative cases as a framework to explore resources for teaching basic to advanced quantitative skills. Participants will work with like-minded colleagues to develop activities for their own classrooms. This workshop is a joint meeting of BioQUEST, the HHMI Quantitative Biology Consortium and the Science Case Network.
- The ACUBE 58th Annual Meeting was held in Portland, Oregon on October 15-17, 2014.
- The PEER 2014 Workshop was held at UTK Aug 14-15.
- Check out the resources from Biology by the Numbers – a workshop for high school teachers at NIMBioS July 2014.
- Here’s what happened at the BioQUEST Faculty Summer 2014 Workshop at the University of Delaware
- 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.
