The Biology Workbench is a computational interface and environment
that permits anybody with a Web browser to readily use bioinformatics,
for research, teaching, or learning. The Education Enhancements
to the Biology Workbench are designed to give a transparent introduction
to the use of the Biology Workbench for learning and teaching biology
at all levels.
The Office of Education and Training department of the American
Society for Microbiology (ASM) currently has an instructional library
available at http://www.asmusa.org/edusrc/edu1.htm.
This is an excellent site for instructional resources such as images,
animations, and movies with legends. You will also find classroom
and laboratory activities. If you have any questions regarding these
resources, please contact Denise Steene at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Emory and Atlanta University Center faculty may apply for small
grants to assist in developing the curriculum.
for Teaching and Curriculum (CTC)
Emory's CTC recognizes and reward excellent teaching throughout
Emory College; provides material support for the development of
new courses, curricula and methods of instruction; studies the attitudes
toward teaching and learning among Emory undergraduates; and promotes

Courses and Tutorials on the Web
A listing of science courses, tutorials and other points of interest
for science educators, college students and K-12 students. Listings
are by subject area. Subject areas include Cell Biology, General
Sciences, Environment and Oceanography, and Developmental Biology
The Project Laboratories are designed to provide a transition from
standard courses and laboratory experiences to independent research.
Project labs are intense courses, meeting 10 hours/week for 4 credits
(as opposed to regular courses which meet 3-6 hours/week).
Collaborative Approach in Improving Science Education and Research
From the CAISER page: "CAISER is a network of faculty working
together in the development of teaching modules including lectures,
experiments and tutorials, and in the formation of inter-institutional
research. Resources from different universities will be available
to the participants to encourage multi- and inter disciplinary research
and education between faculty and students. Workshops will be established
to design, and evaluate the network¹s projects and role in
overall science education. VideoCom, Web pages, research software
for visualization, modeling and numerical analyses will be used
to facilitate collaboration between these schools. An intensive
dissemination and evaluation procedure will be designed to evaluate
the different activities and function of the network."
Using interactive case studies to teach fundamental scientific concepts.
