Making a Difference with Data
Access to well organized and level-appropriate scientific content online has freed instructors from presenting that content in courses. Furthermore, access to escience resources including data and analysis tools provide opportunities to engage students in scientific practices and participation in a knowledge building community. How can curriculum structures reflect this new teaching and learning environment? What are effective instructional strategies for supporting student inquiry and promoting a deep understanding of biological principles and practices? What opportunities and challenges does an emphasis on working with data pose? The 2012 BioQUEST Summer Workshop will bring together a diverse community of innovative biology educators representing multiple national projects to work together on these difficult issues.
