Courses in a box

What is a Course-in-a-Box?

Each Bio-Link Course-in-a-Box™ is a collection of most of the resources that an instructor would need to adapt and introduce a new course.  These collections are compiled and contributed by instructors in Bio-Link programs.

These resources can include:

  • a course description
  • student outcomes
  • a detailed schedule
  • reading assignments or references to a textbook or articles
  • laboratory exercises
  • references to a lab manual
  • lecture materials
  • classroom activities
  • homework assignments
  • exams and quizzes
  • videos

We hope you will find these materials useful and we encourage you to use them and send us feedback to help guide improvements.

We also hope you will be inspired to share your own course!
