Our campaign to evolve the culture of biology into 21st century teaching, is through developing training for potentially thousands of future faculty in intentional, inclusive, evidence-based teaching (EBT) practices. This collaborative work builds and expands upon a formerly funded NSF Research Coordination Network, the Biology Teaching Assistant Project (BioTAP).
We will transform the momentum gained by BioTAP into a new phase through this funded work: Evolving the Culture of Biology: Promoting Graduate Teaching Assistant Professional Development to Foster Inclusion, Efficacy, and Evidence-based Practices. Here we will develop, facilitate, and evaluate a series of regional Evolving the Culture of Biology (ECB) Workshops, designed to host teams of scholars from institutions across the nation.
