NABT Webinar- September 20

  1. Deborah Rook

    Teaching Modules from QB@CC:

    Tools to Improve Biology Student’s Quantitative Skills


    Wednesday, September 20th, from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM (ET)

    5:00 PM CT / 3:00 PM MT / 2:00 PM PT

    Join the NABT and QB@CC communities for a special webinar to examine cellular biology content through a quantitatively focused exploration. Using the popular open educational resource (OER) entitled Sizes, Scales, and Specialization: An activity highlighting the diversity in cell types, participants will be able to:

    • Compare and contrast how structure and function relationships impact cell size with different cell types.
    • Perform algebraic conversions between volume, density, individual cell mass, total cellular mass, and frequency of different cell types using numbers written in scientific notation.
    • Describe the advantages of specialization of eukaryotic cells in multicellular organisms.

    Participants of the webinar will go through portions of the module as learners, observe how to implement various active learning sessions, and then discuss the module with their fellow educators.

    The audience level for this module is appropriate for undergraduate and high school educators.

    This webinar will be presented by:

    • Joe Esquibel, Lansing Community College, Lansing, MI
    • Jillian Miller, Roane State Community College, Harriman, TN
    • Jennifer Buntz, Central New Mexico Community College, Albuquerque, NM

    This module was created by the Quantitative Biology @ Community Colleges (QB@CC) network, an NSF-funded group where biology and math instructors work together to create various quantitative skills-focused biology modules. This network has created 39 freely available modules and is currently recruiting instructors at all teaching levels - but with an emphasis on community college instructors - to create additional modules. If participants find this module useful or want to create modules, they are welcome to join the network.


    NABT will be using Zoom for this event, and login instructions will be sent via email from
