Make the Case: Using Case Studies to Increase Quantitative Biology Skills (Spring 2019 FMN)
Are you interested in adopting case studies that address quantitative reasoning skills? Apply now to join us for the Make the Case: Using Case Studies to Increase Quantitative Biology Skills Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN).
Biology is undergoing a data revolution. Advances in field, laboratory, and computer technology have made an unprecedented array of data available for biologists. This is particularly true in the field of ecology. Students will need to develop not only the basic mathematical skills but also learn how to how to include and apply data analysis, collection, and presentation into their research design. During this Faculty Mentoring Network, participants will modify and implement case studies available from the national Center for Case Study Teaching In Science as a platform for introducing these important data literacy skills into biology classrooms. While doing this, you will participate in biweekly virtual sessions to collaborate with and support others in the network and receive mentoring.
Applications are due December 7, 2018. Please visit https://qubeshub.org/groups/cases2019 for additional information and instructions on how to apply.
