Description

Cell Collective is an online, research-grade modeling platform adapted to engage students in creating and simulating dynamic models of biological processes. The use of modeling and simulation emphasizes higher-order cognitive skills, positioning students to be critical and reflective thinkers proficient in problem-solving and effective communication. Our lessons are designed to engage students in model building and validations of the system’s dynamics through simulation. Comparing the behavior of the system under varied conditions helps students gain insight into the mechanism of a phenomenon. Cell Collective lessons are self-contained, guided exercises suitable for introductory through upper-level courses, and are readily completed in either an in-class or homework setting.
