QBIC Program: Quantifying Biology in the Classroom

To create a quantitative biological sciences track within the Biological Sciences major; to increase the likelihood that scholars finishing the program can move fluidly among conceptual, analytical and quantitative approaches to solving biological problems; and to act as an incubator for new pedagogical techniques, labs and methods within biological sciences. Curriculum reformation; regular and consistent faculty and TA communications through discussions/meetings; TA training through the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and education conferences; faculty refreshers through education conferences and symposia; pedagogy research.
