Beyond Assessing Knowledge - Card Sorting, Superheroes, and Moving Towards Measuring Biological Expertise among Undergraduates, by Kimberly Tanner, San Fransisco State University

How do biology experts structure their thinking about the concepts in their discipline? How is this different from the way those new to the field approach these same ideas? In this interactive seminar, Dr. Kimberly Tanner will engage the audience in thinking about expert and novice thinking in biology by drawing upon her own research that integrates methodologies from science education and cognitive psychology. Approaches to understanding and measuring biological expertise are strongly tied to ideas put forward by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the recently published, Vision and Change for Undergraduate Biology Education. {Will appear in FYI on May 14, 2012
