The QB@CC project is pleased to announce new opportunities to participate in developing and using quantitative biology modules. Community college mathematics, statistics, and life sciences faculty are invited to apply for an Incubator or the Faculty Mentoring Network.
Incubators are a wonderful way to develop an educational module with colleagues with a little logistical support from a facilitator. Incubator modules are published as OERs, providing the authors with a citation as well as a new resource. Incubator application can be accessed from here.
Faculty Mentoring Networks (FMNs) are for faculty who would like to implement new quantitative biology modules in their classrooms. FMN participants work with a mentor and a peer community to learn more about teaching quantitative skills as they implement modules in their classrooms. FMN application can be accessed from here.
Since the launch of the first cohort of network participants in February 2020, the QB@CC network has expanded to include 50+ faculty teaching Biology and Math across 26 community colleges in the United States. The work done by the network participants have resulted in the publication of 11 modules in the QB@CC site. The work has also been presented and showcased at 15 or more professional conferences/workshops/meetings.
