Possible Audiences:

College introductory and advanced biology courses; also 9-12.  

 
 


Brief Overview:

We have developed resources that are tailored for our home institutions and for the particular courses and student audiences we teach. We are taking BioQUEST cases and adapting them to our local environments. In addition, an antelope problem space is being developed that will contain several modules for use in beginning and advanced biology courses. It will include modules on artiodactyl phylogeny, antelope energetics, and a module on the ecological disaster that is playing out in the Sahel of Africa.  

 
   
 


Project Materials:

Artiodactyl Phylogeny--utilizes Biology Workbench Antelope Energetics--utilizes Excel and is targeted for the Esteem Collection Nomads, Migrating Herds and Disaster in the Sahel of Africa

Future Directions:

We plan to continue work on our respective activities and also to share resources.
