Quantitative skills have been recognized as core competencies for career success in biology, and many faculty are interested in teaching more quantitative biology in their courses. The QUBES project is designed to improve communication among educators, assist faculty in understanding and implementing novel content and teaching strategies in their unique classroom settings, and create an academic reward system that emphasizes teaching as well as research. To meet these goals, QUBES is building a diverse online community of educators interested in quantitative biology.

NGSS, AP Biology, and Vision & Change all highlight the importance of quantitative skills to understanding biology. The Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis (QUBES, qubeshub.org) project addresses the many of the challenges associated with improving students’ quantitative skills. Although the project primarily focuses onundergraduate settings, high school faculty may also find the project resources valuable.This symposium will include 3-4 brief presentations by faculty who have adapted and used a diverse collection quantitative reasoning teaching resources as part of their participation in various Faculty Mentoring Networks (FMNs). FMNs are long duration, low intensity, online learning communities that support faculty through the customization and implementation of effective teaching materials. The FMNs represented will include HHMI Biointeractive, ESA/TIEE, DryadLab, and AIMS. These projects are all chosen because they leverage existing high quality quantitative teaching resources that should be of interest to the broad NABT audience. The resources will be presented as a collection of “implementation stories” which feature peer-to-peer descriptions of how a wide range of disciplinary topics, institutional settings, and quantitative skills were accommodated. Portions of these resources will be distributed during the symposium and additional supporting materials will be available online.In addition to sharing specific teaching resources we will highlight ways for symposium attendees to participate in the QUBES project. An introductory presentation will raise attendees awareness of our approach to supporting quantitative reasoning in biology classrooms and share opportunities for their participation in future Faculty Mentoring Networks. The closing presentation will reflect on, and generalize from, the specific “implementation stories” to provide an overview of how Faculty Mentoring Networks are used to support teaching scholarship, and ways that attendees can participate.

The incorporation of quantitative skills and concepts into biology classrooms remains a major hurdle for biology education reform. Biology faculty often feel underprepared to teach quantitative reasoning, may not feel supported to develop and implement change, and receive little or no credit for time devoted to reforming their teaching. We hypothesize that promoting the scholarly aspects of quantitative biology education can increase faculty participation and persistence in their reform efforts. Our model of the factors influencing faculty perceptions of their teaching scholarship has three primary components: 1) faculty must have sufficient knowledge of quantitative reasoning content and effective pedagogy; 2) they must exhibit high self-efficacy around their teaching; and, 3) they must self-identify as quantitative biology teachers. To test our proposed model, we have designed, implemented, and assessed faculty mentoring networks (FMNs), which are online communities that support faculty in their efforts to infuse quantitative skills into their existing courses. The structure of FMNs have emerged from the use of four design principles that connect the activities faculty engage to components of our change model. The faculty mentoring networks are designed to provide mentoring in quantitative biology from experienced peers and content experts, support a collaborative community working on shared problems and goals, engage faculty all the way through classroom implementation and encourage the public sharing of teaching projects. The design of FMNs will continue to be refined as more networks are developed, but early evidence points to their success as measured by faculty implementation of projects in their classrooms.

There is a significant need to design and test alternative models for faculty development around undergraduate science teaching. Existing models for helping faculty adopt evidence-based teaching strategies have generally been shown to be ineffective at promoting change in classroom practices. Additionally, the existing models do not scale well and often do not reflect the pedagogical strategies that they promote. Here we report early outcomes from the faculty development portion of the Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis (QUBES) project. The interventions involved participation in Faculty Mentoring Networks (FMN). FMNs are unique in that participants interact over multiple weeks in an online community to customize and implement a particular high quality teaching strategy focused on quantitative biology. We report on two FMNs that each had 10-15 faculty participants and shared many structural features but focused on very different teaching strategies. One network focused on the use of agent based modelling in the classroom (ABM) while the other network focused on student use of research datasets associated with the Dryad data repository (DL). To assess the effectiveness of FMNs in faculty development, we collected data from faculty participation in the FMN activities and surveys conducted at the end of the interventions. Overall, participants indicated that the FMN experience provided strong motivation, guidance, and support to create and/or adapt materials targeting students’ quantitative reasoning skills (Likert scale: 1 - 5; ABM (N = 10): 4.9 /- 0.1; DL (N = 9): 5.0 /- 0). In ABM, 50% of participants developed and shared a sketch for a student activity using BehaviorSpace simulations. In DL, 70% of participants produced and shared an adaptation of a data-driven curriculum module. Participants unanimously agreed that they would recommend FMNs to colleagues, and 95% indicated they would be interested in participating in another network. Qualitative analysis of free response survey questions suggests that peer interactions are a key element underlying the successful adoption of new teaching strategies in FMNs. Through the sharing of materials and experiences (i.e. “teacher talk”), faculty saw how others “put their own spin” on a topic. By comparing and contrasting different approaches, faculty could decide which strategies might work in their own classroom. Seven additional FMNs are running in spring 2016. We will refine our assessment for these networks to further identify the mechanisms that promote a positive and productive professional development experience for faculty and encourage implementation of quantitative biology in undergraduate classrooms.
