About this blog

We regularly attend education-related conferences and pay attention to research findings related to active learning in science education. In this blog we share our explorations of what seems to be working well (and not so well) in the fields of education, educational technologies and life sciences teaching. We hope our descriptions and analyses will help instructors continue to engage and expand the minds of their students through:

  • incorporating independent exploration and play into teaching
  • appropriate use of computers in education
  • new data on teaching effectiveness
  • current stories and examples you can use in class to engage students
  • best practices in life science education and beyond
