Vision & Change in Undergraduate Botany Education

Gibson, J [1].

Vision & Change in Undergraduate Botany Education.

The Vision & Change in Undergraduate Education Report (AAAS) describes ways in which knowledge of how students learn and understanding of effective pedagogical approaches can be used to catalyze changes in undergraduate STEM education and better educate students about how scientists investigate and understand the natural world. The changes called for in this document must be implemented at multiple levels, from how faculty engage students in the classroom, to larger curricular changes at the department and institutional level, to the role of scientific societies. This symposium will explore the objectives of the Vision & Change Call to Action from the perspective of plant science. It will include exemplary instructors speaking on their approaches to implementing the recommendations of Vision and Change, interactive engagement of the audience, and focused discussions on how individuals, departments, and the Society can facilitate these changes in STEM education. Speakers: Kathleen Archer - Trinity College, Cynthia Bauerle - Vision and Change Advisory Board, Assistant Director, PreCollege and Undergraduate Science Education, Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), Sara Brownell -  Arizona State University, Phil Gibson - University of Oklahoma, and Elizabeth Schussler - University of Tennessee.
