Description:

Peer leadership training for biology students who will serve as TAS for the Tu/Th section of BIOL 13100. The Provost has committed a budget for a new learning space in Hicks B848 and support services for this pilot BIOL 13100 course. Funding from the Gates Foundation makes it possible to loan students a headset with microphone, webcam, and a USB document camera called IPEVO for groups to work online to solve problems.  Peer leaders will guide a team of BIOL13100 students as they collaborate on the problem sets, sometimes defining a research question related to a biological problem, locating, identifying, and retrieving information resources related to the problem, using journals and web resources, evaluating and treating critically the information received, citing sources, and using information ethically and legally in writing about the development, structure, and function of organisms. In addition the peer leader will schedule and conduct weekly meetings in the Adobe Connect learning environment online where workshops will be held with a team of BIOL13100 students. For this reason, students who enroll in this class to become a peer leader will need a computer to use with the equipment.
