NSF DUE Grant #9952525  M. A. Waterman and E. D. Stanley 09/01/1999 -08/31/02

LifeLines OnLine: Accessible Investigative Biology for Community Colleges: The goal of this project is to encourage these adult learners to use problem-solving strategies informed by science and to value science as private citizens and workers. The challenge with respect to meeting this goal is to develop educational materials that put biology into meaningful contexts, that help students develop problem-solving and information management skills, and that are pedagogically consistent with adult learning strategies.
