The Science of Teaching: Evidence-Based Approaches in Biology Education

Division of Biological Sciences Seminar Program

The goal of these seminars and conversations on teaching is to engage in discussions about evidence-based education methods and teaching practices in our own division and in other departments, divisions, and institutions. Seminars will feature invited speakers, and conversations on teaching will be led by colleagues within the Division of Biological Sciences. The times and days of the events will vary.
