Description

Vision and Change stressed the importance of quantitative skills for the future of science in the United States. In response to this plea, biologists and mathematicians came together to discuss quantitative education, and QUBES (Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis) was born. QUBES was recently awarded a five-year grant from the Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) Program at the National Science Foundation, and aims to improve learning opportunities for all students enrolled in undergraduate biology courses. This presentation will focus on how QUBES plans to achieve this goal (for example, through mentoring networks and an online Hub of collaborating educators) and how you can get involved in this new community.
