Students will demonstrate:
For courses in the traditional natural science disciplines (e.g., chemistry, biology, physics, etc.) the inclusion of a laboratory component, though highly desirable, is not necessary for approval. For inter- or multi-disciplinary courses (e.g., environmental science, or the science portions of integrated curricula), or courses that fall outside the envelope of traditional natural science disciplines (e.g., psychology), submitted course information should demonstrate clearly:
National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science at the University of Buffalo has extensive online examples of case studies that can be used in large classes. They involve students in various aspects of the scientific method starting with inquiry and problem-solving and including experimentation and analysis.
University of Delaware Problem-Based Learning Center has online, sample syllabi and problems in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, nutrition and dietetics, physics, and general science.
