The landscape of undergraduate biology education is populated by diverse and innovative efforts to engage and motivate learners. However, these projects are generally isolated, often resource intensive, and rarely have impacts beyond the original context of their development. The Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education & Synthesis (QUBES) project acts as a scientific gateway for biology education reform by providing access to community specific tools, opportunities for collaboration, and data resources. This suite of resources and tools has been embraced by a broad interdisciplinary consortium of projects, professional societies, institutions, and organizations who are vested in the development of biology students’ quantitative reasoning skills. This seminar will share findings from our ongoing work in promoting reform uptake with an emphasis on teaching with data and building data literacy skills.
