Title: Using Genetics Mini-lectures and Podcasts to Make Time for Active Learning
Url: http://scientificteaching.wisc.edu/materials/molecular/active_learnin...
Publisher: Wisconsin Program for Scientific Teaching
Description: The goal of the Wisconsin Program for Scientific Teaching is "to enhance undergraduate biology education by training a new generation of scientific teachers." The hope is that these future faculty and researchers will also become quite adept at teaching a range of undergraduates. The Program's work includes creating instructional tools and teaching materials for the classroom, and this particular tool is designed to help educators create mini-lectures on genetics and podcasts in order to encourage and make time for active learning. The primary goals of these lectures and podcasts are to help students learn about the mechanisms of mitosis and meiosis, along with providing some background on genetic variability. Visitors will note that there are worksheets provided here, along with podcasts and teaching instructions.
