Scientific Learning

Project Overview

Now in its second year, Christine Marshall-Walker’s project is focused on identifying and assessing learning outcomes for students in our advanced biology (BIOL-500) and molecular biology research (BIOL-600) courses. After collecting preliminary data in 2016-17, she will launch a more expansive, formal study this fall. The overarching goal is to identify and nurture specific attitudes and behaviors that promote academic maturation in our students while strengthening their love of learning. Based on this year’s study, she hopes to identify and share outcomes and strategies that are relevant for teachers across the Division of Natural Sciences as well as those at other institutions.
