BIO 202 - Laboratory/Research Techniques for K-12 Biology Teachers
Semester Hours: 3
This course is designed to help K through 12 school teachers develop either cell/molecular or ecology/evolution research methods classes and inquiry-driven laboratory experiences for their students. The course will introduce teachers to model systems that can be applied to research and inquiry-based laboratories. Model organisms, subject matter, and targeted school level may change with separate offerings of this course. Course content will include the basic biology of the organisms and an introduction to the types of research for which the organisms are currently being used. Techniques that can be used for inquiry-driven investigations will be introduced. In the second half of the course, class participants will work in groups to design new experiments or avenues of investigation.
The course may be repeated for credit when the model systems covered change. May not be taken on a Pass/Fail basis. (Formerly Laboratory/Research Techniques for High School Biology Teachers.)
