Integrating inquiry-based undergraduate instruction with faculty research, by Tadashi Fukami, Stanford University

Abstract: Recent concerted efforts in the US to improve undergraduate biology education led to increased appreciation of the value of "inquiry-based" instruction modeled on real-world scientific practice. However, inquiry-based instruction has not been adopted very widely. One problem hindering the change may be insufficient time and resources for faculty to undertake new ways of teaching. It has been suggested that a viable solution to this problem is to build inquiry-based courses on faculty research programs, essentially combining teaching and research as synergistic activities. In my talk, I will share what we have learned through redesigning of a large ecology lab course. {Will appear in FYI on Nov 12, 2013
