Workshop @ ASMCUE: Developing Quantitative Skills in Your Courses Using HHMI BioInteractive Resources

Presented by Rebecca Orr (Collin College) and Holly Basta (Rocky Mountain College)

Presented at ASMCUE 2018 (Austin)

This workshop will focus on how HHMI BioInteractive resources and inclusive teaching practices can be used to increase students’ quantitative literacy and confidence working with data. A discrepancy between quantitative skills acquired in math courses and their application in sciences courses has been identified (Brent 2004, Gross 2004, Hoy 2004). Furthermore, standardized tests now assess quantitative reasoning as it has been linked to success in graduate programs (AAMC/HHMI 2009). Implementation of active learning and targeted assessment create opportunities to develop higher-order thinking and quantitative skills without sacrificing content. Emphasizing the importance of instructional scaffolding, this workshop will guide attendees through the process of engaging students using strategies such as story-telling and collaborative learning, while integrating quantitative skills like data manipulation and graph analysis into their introductory biology and microbiology courses.
