SERC: Pedagogy in Action  Using Investigative Cases

Adopting, adapting, and creating investigative cases
  • Writing your own case enables you to highlight local concerns, address specific learning issues, or utilize existing resources.
  • Adopting and adopting existing cases is a good option for busy teachers.
  • Consider NSF’s cyberlearning focus in your instructional design.
Case Learning Plant Science Technology Careers
  • Investigative cases require instructors to assess problem posing and problem solving. Learners must be prepared to defend their conclusions with data and methods that are appropriate.
  • Posters offer a way to present questions, data, methods, and conclusions and involve learners in peer review. Case writing should draw on learner’s prior experience and generate a need to know.
  • Fibers are unique to specific plants and differ considerably from animal or man-made fibers.
  • Plant DNA can provide information useful for identification and geographic location.
  • Cotton technology leads to new uses globally.

DAY 2

Structural Links

This morning I wanted to take just a few minutes to update you on some new and handy structural tools for your modules and/or cases! Here’s a list of links that we will be making use of:

Some PyMOL tutorials that might be handy:

Now we’ll spend a few minutes examining what is in a Proteopedia entry.  I use Proteopedia with both my graduate and undergraduate students.  Here’s an example of what Gregg S. did with Triose Phosphate Isomarase.

When we talked two years ago we talked about Problem Spaces and how can we make use of them in our classroom. Some project spaces which make use of protein structure include:
