Scaffolding Genomics Learning for Undergraduates by Susan Singer, Carleton College and NSF

When: Monday, May 06, 2013 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Where: Biology - Psychology : 1250
Event Type(s): Seminar

Susan's career integrates science and education research. In this seminar, she will share her research and experience in reforming science teaching in the undergraduate level. At Carleton and Vassar, Susan and colleagues are integrating wet labs and in silico labs to scaffold student research experiences connected to climate change and the biology of the prairie plant Chamaecrista and the anemone Aiptasia, respectively. Whole transcriptome sequencing can provide undergraduates with large data sets forming a foundation for authentic research experiences in the context of a teaching lab. Susan will describe how they assess student learning outcomes using multiple assessment tools.
