Scientific Learning: Measuring Outcomes in Generative, Experiential Science Courses

Project Overview

This project is focused on identifying and assessing learning outcomes for students in advanced biology (BIOL-500) and molecular biology research (BIOL-600) courses. Christine Marshall-Walker is gathering preliminary data in 2016, in preparation for a more formal study in 2017-2018, aimed to identify learning outcomes relevant for teachers across the Division of Natural Sciences as well as for those at other institutions. The overarching goal is to identify and nurture specific attitudes and behaviors that promote academic maturation in students while strengthening their love of learning.
