Hello SW PULSE Community members!  

Have you considered doing a self-assessment of your department for the V&C Certification pilot program?  Our Certification group is looking to collect data on where folks are with respect to the PULSE V&C Rubrics.  Further, I think, if we capture a nice collection of data from the SW, we can begin a conversation about the kinds of workshops, conferences, etc., that would benefit the most schools in the SW region.  So, we urge you to please consider doing the survey: http://www.pulsecommunity.org/page/v-c-certification. (Go to the bottom where it says to request a link.)

THANKS!

Akif - we are doing just this during the summer at Trinity.  I think some regional workshops would be great. Stay tuned!

Best,  David

Transforming the laboratory exercises into research experiences

At UPR-Cayey we are trying to substitute the traditional recipe-type laboratory exercises with research projects that have the elements of scientific inquiry.  One idea is to identify and define two or three semester-long research projects that are easy to do in terms of cost-effectiveness, materials, etc. Students would work in groups of 4-5 and present their results in a seminar at the end of the semester.  There would be lab meetings, article discussions, etc.We plan to pilot-test this idea with two lab sections (approx. 16 students each) of General Biology I next year (2013).  Among the challenges we may face are how to scale-up, the nature of the projects, integration with the lecture, and assessment, among others.Any ideas, comments and suggestions are welcome.  See More
