BIOL 409 - Seminar: Scientific Trailblazers

FC NSMA
4 credits
Seminar explores contributions of scientists with identities underrepresented in science, with an emphasis on plant biologists. Students will discuss original scientific papers written by these authors, aiming to understand the underlying biology. Because teaching is the best way to learn, students will go on to collaboratively design an inclusive classroom activity addressing a misconception or core concept in biology, formulate a strategy to test the activity’s effectiveness, and implement the activity in Bio 100.  Students will then communicate their findings. It is hoped that the activity developed in this course will be useful in BIOL 100 in future years.
Prerequisites & Notes: Pre- or co-requisite: BIOL 213.
