Event Description

Solving problems using data analysis and logical reasoning is one of the primary goals of a science-based education. One evidence-based tool used to support student learning of this goal is the case-study, where students build and rationalize hypotheses grounded in experimental data. This approach allows students to analyze data, and to practice making logical connections. […]

Event Description

Flexible learning strategies (including flipped classrooms and blended learning environments) have great potential to engage learners and enrich their learning experience. However, it can be challenging to add these elements to a course so that they promote achievement of course learning outcomes without adding unduly to students’ workload. Over the past two years, the redesign […]
