 Implementing Problem Solving Strategies:

Investigative Cases for Biology and Chemistry

(See http://www.sciencenet.emory.edu/coll_curr/pbl_biochem_summer2002.html)

Faculty participants each developed an investigative case-based learning module for a course they are planning to teach. The cases emphasized open ended, student-centered approaches while addressing practical issues such as implementation challenges, assessment strategies, and student preparation. Investigative cases included a wide range of topics including the chemistry of restoring faded photographs, treating staph infections that exhibit antibiotic resistance, government regulation over the exchange of science through the patenting and marketing of GMOs, and identifying potential species for a new fishery.

The workshop was led by Margaret Waterman from Southeast Missouri State University, Peter Woodruff from Champlaign College, and Ethel Stanley from Beloit College. For more information on these and other cases, visit the LifeLines OnLine website at http://www.bioquest.org/lifelines/.
