The Certificate in Biotechnology Education incorporates the fundamental and emerging ideas in biology and biotechnology, as well as issues related to teaching and learning of bioscience at the middle and high school levels.
Middle and secondary teachers, as well as curriculum and instructional leaders, will strengthen their content knowledge and pedagogic techniques in bioscience, and develop ways to teach bioscience effectively in their classrooms.
This Certificate consists of five graduate-level courses. The Independent Research Project course will emphasize inquiry-oriented approaches and integrating technology in bioscience education.
Moreover, teachers will analyze recent research on bioscience education, reflect on their learning and practice, and develop teaching tools and assessment strategies to engage students in bioscience-related problems and inquiries.
