ASM M(icro)OOCs: Improving Microbiology Students’ Quantitative Skills
Overall Series Description and Learning Goals:
This new four-part webinar series, sponsored by ASM and QUBES focuses on increasing quantitative biology in undergraduate education. Each of the four 60-minute sessions will address common issues around teaching quantitative skills and reasoning, ranging from dilutions to graphing to data analysis. The program will run from September to December, 2016 and will be coupled with a virtual learning community. Upon viewing the webinars and participating in a virtual faculty learning community, attendees will be able to:
- Identify challenges to teaching quantitative skills in microbiology.
- Examine their own teaching practices to see how quantitative skills are taught and reinforced in the classroom/laboratory.
- Discover innovative methods faculty are incorporating into classroom and laboratories to improve student quantitative skills.
- Develop or adapt methods and models that involve data collection and analysis as a means of practice and improving quantitative skills.
- Develop a community of practice among colleagues where we can share knowledge and help one another develop and deploy innovative methods in teaching quantiative skills to microbiology students.
