Investigative Cases Revisited
Welcome to an interactive follow up session on Margaret Waterman's workshop. We will share case experiences, new resources, presentation and publication possibilities including submitting your cases online, and additional insights. Introduction to the BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium: Resources for Collaborative Problem Solving in the Undergraduate Classroom Monday 1.5 hours Join us as we explore online BioQUEST resources including modeling and simulations, tools, visual datasets, problem spaces, investigative cases, and workshop projects.
The BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium actively supports educators interested in the reform of undergraduate biology and engages in the collaborative development of curricula.
Avian Influenza - New Strategies for Interdisciplinary Problem Solving
The international Commission on Biology Education (CBE) argues that global biology education influences "almost all our activities, from inception to the grave" and "will require profound decisions with respect to the ethical, legal, social, cultural, educational, and developmental issues that are sure to arise, affecting our personal lives and society in ways that we have never experienced before.” (Vohra 2000)
This session focuses on the increasing probability of an Avian Influenza pandemic, from an interdisciplinary perspective. We will explore an an online collaborative workspace at The Open Educational Resources site. Open Educational Resources, or OER, offer new ways to engage with shared learning content. OER Commons is a teaching and learning network of shared materials, from K through college, from algebra to zoology, open to all to use. The site integrates OnLine resources for interdisciplinary problem solving
Participants will work in groups, explore diverse online resources from multiple disciplines, and construct integrated resources for undergraduate learning and teaching about Avian Influenza.
