Scholarly Teaching, Active Learning, Communicating Science
ASPB is active in the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education (V&C) movement to ‘nurture the implementation of the vision of a biology education that aligns with the reality of the rapidly changing nature of biology: a vision that demands conceptual, integrative, and critical thinking which crosses disciplinary boundaries and develops problem-solving skills and the ability to work with data at a scale previously unimaginable.’
The ASPB Master Educator Program funds Society member professional development for developing undergraduate plant biology instructional materials aligned with V&C and ASPB’s Core Concepts in Plant Biology. Deadline: March 12, 2018
The ASPB Plant Biology Learning Objectives, Outreach Materials & Education Grant funds Society member projects that advance youth, student, and general public knowledge and appreciation of plant biology.
Tests a bespoke professional development (PD) model whereby teachers and scientists guide high school students in authentic science and then reflect on instructional and mentoring strategies. NSF #1502892
