Program Description

This is a graduate-level professional development course. It is designed to enhance your understanding of inquiry-based approaches to teaching standards-based biological science at the high school level. In eight sessions, you will investigate biology topics, such as genetics, evolution and cell biology. Suggested teaching methodologies use a wide range of online resources, including video segments, interactive activities and readings. The course provides an opportunity to explore novel learning environments and pedagogy applications that foster student interest, involve students in the research process, advance critical thinking/problem-solving skills, and develop conceptual understanding of biological topics.
