The QB@CC project is pleased to announce new opportunities to participate in developing and using quantitative biology modules. Community college mathematics, statistics, and life sciences faculty are invited to apply for an Incubator or the Faculty Mentoring Network. Incubators are a wonderful way to develop an educational module with colleagues with a little logistical support from a facilitator. Incubator modules are published as OERs, providing the authors with a citation as well as a new resource. Faculty Mentoring Networks (FMNs) are for faculty who would like to implement new quantitative biology modules in their classrooms. FMN participants work with a mentor and a peer community to learn more about teaching quantitative skills as they implement modules in their classrooms. Learn more about these opportunities here!
Conceptualizing Connections between Mathematics and Biology
Are you interested in adopting modules that address mathematical skills using a topic in biology? Apply now to join us for the Spring 2023 QB@CC and BioQUEST/QUBES Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN).
Participants in this FMN will focus on how to use data-driven modules in undergraduate mathematics courses. Accepted applicants will customize and implement newly designed biology educational modules from a wide range of topics. While doing this, they will participate in biweekly virtual sessions to collaborate with and support others in the network and receive mentoring.
Applications due January 5, 2023. Space is limited.
Developing Interdisciplinary Resources for Math and Biology
Are you interested in developing open education resources to introduce quantitative skills in a life sciences classroom AND provide life science context and data in a mathematics classroom? Apply now to join a 2023 Spring QB@CC Incubator!
Participants in incubators will focus on developing modules with a strong focus on quantitative skills that can be used in both undergraduate life science and mathematics courses. Accepted applicants will work in groups that include math and biology faculty, select a mutually interesting quantitative biology topic, and collaborate to develop educational modules appropriate for use in their own classrooms. Teams of math and biology faculty are encouraged to apply. Team applicants may stay together or join different groups to work on their module for the semester. Participants will have weekly virtual sessions to collaborate with and support others in the incubator group.
This year, the incubators will be starting with an in-person meeting at HHMI in February, 2023!
Applications now due December 19, 2022.
