Dr. Jeff Morris presents concepts and competencies to ROSE members including Dr. Peggy Biga and Dr. Mickie Powell.
We had a great first meeting of the ROSE Network today. We discussed the landmark AAAS publication Vision and Change, which lays out a plan for reforming biology education for the 21st century. Our major focus was on the Core Competencies and Core Concepts for undergraduate Biology suggested by Vision and Change. We had an active group discussion section where our network participants discussed how these Core ideas are addressed in our existing classes, and how we could approach them better in the future, especially in terms of the undergraduate Biology curriculum as a whole as opposed to in our individual courses.
