Topic: Partnership between CIDDE and the Biological Sciences Department: Supporting curricular transformations of Large Laboratories
Discussion leaders: Dr. Jean Schmidt, biological sciences, Dr. Joel Brady, CIDDE
When: Monday, April 4, 2016 from 12 - 1 pm
Where: 321 Allen Hall
Description: Introductory Biology Lab at the University of Pittsburgh is a very large enrollment, two-semester course sequence serving more than 1000 students per semester in 60+ laboratory sections, facilitated by an evolving team of 20-24 instructors. Instructor training is key, as we work to transition from traditional cookbook type labs to an inquiry-based curriculum that develops students' science process skills. Jean Schmidt of the Department of Biological Sciences and Dr. Joel Brady of CIDDE will present the story of their ongoing partnership in instructor training in support of curricular transformation. The goals of the discussion is to share their approaches to instructor training, and to demonstrate aspects of their training program that could potentially be applied in other contexts or departments.
