Description

The Quantitative Biology at Community Colleges (QB@CC) project is working to develop open educational resources in the form of quantitative modules that can be used in mathematics and biology courses.  It is important that these modules are vetted across different courses and formats. Faculty mentoring networks (FMNs) provide support for implementing new teaching content into courses, and provides a way to disseminate these modules for QB@CC.  In the Spring of 2021, using the Quantitative Undergraduate Education and Synthesis (QUBESHub) platform, previously published QB@CC modules were used in a faculty mentoring network that met bi-weekly over the course of the semester.  As a result of the of the FMN, faculty participants created adaptations to the published QB@CC resource modules to make them better suited for their courses. The participating faculty indicated a greater willingness to share personally developed teaching resources, and believed that having pedagogical conversations with other faculty was highly valuable in implementing these modules.  These adaptations and original modules are collated at QB@CC.
