This is a poster presentation at the 2020 NABT Annual PD Conference. This poster describes the goals of QB@CC project, progress in the first year and an update on the upcoming events.


Biology has become an increasingly quantitative science, and the development and reinforcement of strong quantitative skills is important for student success. Corwin et al (2019) identified key challenges in teaching quantitative skills in introductory biology, including lack of faculty pedagogical content knowledge and lack of well aligned educational resources. Quantitative Biology at Community Colleges (QB@CC) is designed to address these challenges and improve student quantitative biology skills. In this poster, we are describing the goals of the project, progress with development of modules in the first year of the grant, and the upcoming events.
