A Workshop on
Integrating Curricula in the Mathematical, Biological, and Environmental Sciences
On Saturday, April 12, 2008, Longwood University will host this exciting workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to:
Learn about the latest curriculum recommendations for integrating curricula in the mathematical, biological, and environmental sciences,
Experience "hands-on" sessions demonstrating these recommendations,
Discuss ways to implement the recommendations in their own curricula, explore potential joint projects with other workshop participants, and determine how to get funding for these initiatives.
Thanks to a generous grant via the Dean's Fund for Scholarship Excellence, we have been able to assemble an impressive group of workshop leaders. They are:
Dr. Adam Fagen - Board on Life Sciences, National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences
Dr. Holly Gaff - Assistant Professor in the School of Community and Environmental Health in the College of Health Sciences at Old Dominion University, affiliated with the Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center.
Dr. Eric Marland,
Associate Professor of Mathematics, Department of Mathematical Sciences,
Appalachian State University, chair of the
Special Interest Group of the Mathematical Association of America,
Dr. Raina Robeva, Associate Professor and Chair, Department of Mathematical Sciences , Sweet Briar College, and lead author of the textbook An Invitation to Biomathematics
Dr. Tony Weisstein, assistant professor of biology at Truman State University, editor of and module developer for the Biological ESTEEM Online Collection (the ESTEEM Collection is a project of the BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium , a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting curricular innovation and early research experiences in the undergraduate curriculum.)
