Biology Faculty Contribute to Study on Student Understanding of Evolution
Dianne Jennings (Associate Professor) and Jonathan Moore (Instructor) attended an Avida-Active Lens workshop prior to the 2018 academic year to receive training on a unique platform for delivering a curriculum of evolution to students. They have created unique modules for in-class and online activities that students in their BIOL 151 and BIOL 152 courses will complete over the course of the 2018 academic year.
The data from these activities will help to develop effective teaching techniques for curricula in evolution that will benefit future biology students across the country. Avida-ED, an application developed and deployed by Michigan State University, will be utilized by Jennings and Moore as a part of their participation in the study. Learn more about Avida-ED here.
