Connecting Concepts: Interactive Lessons in Biology was
produced collaboratively at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
- Transforming Teaching Through Technology (T4), Learning
Solutions, Division of Information Technology
- Instructors of Introductory Biology 151/152
These Lessons were designed to unify the learning experiences
of students across multiple sections in Biology 151/152
at UW-Madison and to increase opportunities for student
self-assessment, promote practice of interdisciplinary skills,
and increase exposure to research examples and real data.
Assessment trials with over 900 students have demonstrated
that these tools result in significant learning gains in
key concept areas.
The Lessons have been implemented into the curriculum of
Biology 151/152 and are currently being made available to
other introductory biology courses in the UW-System and
to upper level biology courses at UW-Madison to provide
students with tools for review of prerequisite concepts.
