Course Details
Course Description: This course is designed to provide participants with the best practices to integrate biotechnology labs into classroom curriculum. After completion of this course, teachers will have completed the set of essential lab techniques that enabled the scientific revolution in biotechnology, and be ready to implement in their own classrooms . The four lab techniques being covered will be bacterial transformation, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), restriction enzymes, and gel electrophoresis. The class will emphasize ways to promote understanding of the molecular basis for and scientific background of each laboratory technique.

Participants will work hands-on in the lab to experience how the techniques could be applied to student learning and brought into their curriculum. Participants will have the opportunity to create a lesson plan that integrates the two genres of writing. Teaching methods include lectures and labwork, readings, discussion, feedback, and sharing. All written work will be done on Google Docs. Participants will be provided with a laptop onsite upon request.

Knowledge of content and pedagogy with a focus on the biotechnology revolution will be a focus of the course. Teachers will complete the course with of how to teach students the skills needed to conduct revolutionary biotechnology techniques in the classroom, and a deep content background in each technique. Teachers will complete the course ready to design coherent instruction in both content and skill when bringing these laboratory techniques to the classroom.
