BioQUEST Notes 2.2 Part 3

People Involved

BioQUEST is a national consortium of educators and software developers who share a common educational philosophy for the uses of computers for teaching biology.

Over the past three years, a large number of people have contributed ideas to Project BioQUEST. The Annenberg/CPB Project funding provided for a Board of Advisors to BioQUEST.

The Board from 1988 through 1990 was is composed of a Board of Advisors and a Project Staff. These participants represent a diversity of backgrounds and experiences with educational computing.

BioQUEST Advisors

Angelo Collins, Advisory Board Chairwoman, Stanford University. Background as high school and college biology teacher, as a genetic counselor, as a researcher on expert problem solving in genetics by using GCK, as the rule generator for MENDEL, as a laison for a state-wide genetics education program, and as a teacher of teachers in biology education. She is currently involved in a national evaluation of science education.

William Finzer, Independent Consultant. Independent consultant and developer of materials for teaching mathematics and statistics without fear. Co-author of a review of educational software for use in California high schools and of SmallTalk software Programming by Rehearsal, an early "Construction Kit" for educational design. Co-recipient of grants for development of educational software.
