dB-SERC lunch discussion 09-25-2017
Topic: Learning from hierarchical templates in biology
Discussion leader: Dr. Kirill Kiselyov, biological sciences
When: Monday September 25, 2017 from 12 - 1 pm
Where: 321 Allen Hall
During the lunch discussion, Dr. Kirill Kiselyov from the biological sciences department will discuss the project “Learning from hierarchical templates,” for which he received a dB-SERC course transformation award. Cell biology involves many advanced concepts and complex tasks, such as connecting observations, reinterpreting findings in a specific experimental context, and making conclusions. To address this complexity, Dr. Kiselyov will implement and assess the practice of using fillable hierarchical templates representing “maps” of information learned in class or from research literature. The templates will graphically represent different levels of information (observations, conclusions, hypotheses) and relations between them. The templates will be filled in by the students and analyzed by the instructor and their peers. The approach is expected to help students organize and understand complex information and will serve as a “map” of students’ learning and difficulties. The purpose of the lunch discussion is to provide feedback on the project and encourage an interchange of ideas.
