S37: Biochemistry Education: Discussions of the Lecture Learning Environment

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This symposium will focus on teaching innovations and educational research related to the biochemistry lecture learning environment. The biochemistry classroom can provide students with the opportunity to grow and develop their understanding of the molecular life science concepts and practices. However, as many biochemistry educators can attest, this potential for student learning is not often fully realized. We invite those teaching lecture courses in all areas of biochemistry to share their work on topics such as, but not limited to, active learning, online education, and biochemical visualization. We encourage all symposium speakers to include some form of assessment such as results from surveys, exam questions, student interviews, or formal assessment instruments in their presentation.
