Examples of Strategies for Active Learning in Undergraduate Biology Education
Day and time TBA

Session length: 3 hours


Organized by: Julia Ruppell (Department of Biology, University of Portland, Portland, OR; ruppell@up.edu).

The process of engaging students in active learning is connected to positive learning outcomes. Many science departments in higher education are embracing this phenomenon by encouraging instructors to use more active learning in their courses. However, many instructors would benefit from increased knowledge of active learning methods and their usefulness for covering different content in their courses. Instructors benefit when they can learn from others about appropriate teaching strategies and methods along with their potential drawbacks, and this in turn benefits students. This workshop aims to engage faculty and students who are interested in promoting active learning in college science classrooms, especially for biology majors’ courses. Presenters will demonstrate active learning methods that they use, discuss what has worked well for their courses, discuss potential hurdles to utilizing active learning in undergraduate education and request feedback from participants. The information in the workshops will inform participants instructional decision-making and future research about active learning in college science courses.

Scientific Maker Workshop
Day and time TBA

Session length: 3 hours


Organized by: Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron (Co-founders, Nonscriptum LLC, 155 N Lake Ave, Suite 800, Pasadena CA 91101; joan@nonscriptum.com).

Have you been wondering if you should be using 3D printing and open-source electronics in your own educational or scientific endeavors, but you didn't know where to start? Most scientists and teachers end up doing some DIY inventing along the way, but can you take it farther now that many technologies have plummeted in price? Organizers will frame the possibilities and walk through several technologies in depth, along with some case studies drawn from the projects that will be on display at the Maker Exchange. This three-hour workshop will be a compliment to the Scientific Maker Exchange and will be a deep dive into some of the technologies and projects on display.
