What are the modeling skills and metacognitive strategies of importance for the life sciences? In this talk, we describe a teaching and learning framework around modeling that (1) highlights the sometimes hidden role of models and modeling in the sciences, and (2) points to a possible path forward on how to move from using models as illustrative tools to using modeling as a process of discovery.
