Spring is rapidly approaching which means it must be time to register for the BioQUEST 2010 Faculty Workshop at Beloit College this June 12-18. We will tackle current global health issues and consider the impacts of global warming on these issues. Visualizing statistics with Gapminder and WorldMapper and an introduction to Investigations in Human Biology and Global Health (2010) will be featured.
Faculty participants spend time together – and importantly – work together on curricular concerns that are mutually compelling. We consider this intense summer experience an unique opportunity for you to explore contemporary problems in biology that you can introduce into your own classroom, laboratory, field or computational experiences. You will have an extended opportunity to collaborate with undergraduate science educators and researchers. Several projects started at a BQ summer workshops are ongoing years later.
During this two day phase, we will collaboratively explore data, tools, and resources focused on global health curricula. Based on these experiences, groups of participants will share their extended work from one or more sessions on Tuesday after dinner.
During the second phase of the workshop, participants take on the role of adopters, adapters and reviewers to consider implementing investigative global health approaches in their own courses. Small groups will share their curricular modules on Friday.
