Biology Learning Research

The Biology Education Research Group (BERG) includes those biology educators who are conducting biology education research beyond the teaching and testing strategies used in their own courses. Although all members of our department work to improve their own delivery of biology education, this dinner table provides an opportunity for investigators to meet others engaged in education research specifically focused on biology beyond their own courses, to contribute to the conversation about future directions in biology education, to share their research, and to help define the needs of a growing community of biology education investigators.  Many BERG faculty collaborate with faculty from other departments in the Purdue International Biology Education Research Group (PIBERG).
