Bsp2 goals 2011 2015

BSP2 Goals (2011-2015)

  • Empower biologists to be modelsof scholarly teaching and practitioners of science education research.

  • Expand and support a highly interactive community of Biology Scholars committed to scientific teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL).

  • Catalyze deep networks among life science professional societies to collectively engage in sustained undergraduate education reform.


Residency goals continuum of professional development

Residency Goals(continuum of professional development)

  • Research (SoTL Institute)

    • Complements HHMI/NAS Summer Institute in Undergrad Biology

    • Design research in learning biology

    • Skills to create, design and implement studies to assess learning

  • Transition (From Research to Publishing Institute)

    • Practice evidenced-based research

    • Skills to identify stages of and responses to preparing work for publication

  • Assessment (Measuring Student Impact Institute)

    • Design course goals and assessments grounded in research on learning

    • Skills to create, design, plan and implement evaluations

    • New in 2011

      All promote a community of practice for consultation and support


Capstone goals develop biologists skills to

Capstone Goals (Develop Biologists’ Skills To)

  • Identify stages of research study with regard to national dissemination (e.g. presentations, publication and/or collaborations)

  • Participate in disciplinary societies

  • Engage in community of practice for consultation and support

Findings 2009 study

Findings: 2009 Study

  • Scholars have different levels of understanding, practice & comfort

    • Assessing student learning

    • Conducting research on their teaching

  • Scholars’ research represent their professional interests and are unique to their institutions and students they teach.


Findings continued

Findings (continued)

  • Scholars are unable to conduct research without the community support.

  • The extent to which societies’ educational missions, goals and financial support translate into programs varies widely.
