Transferring a course developed for honors students to non-major biology students : lessons learned

Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)

Abstract

Honors colleges offer the opportunity for faculty to teach small classes to motivated, academically gifted students. One possible benefit offered by teaching honors courses is the opportunity to experiment with new teaching approaches. Thus, one goal of honors colleges is to act as a “lab” for developing novel educational approaches that can be applied across the university. Here I report on the lessons learned from my experience transferring a course developed for honors students to the general student population.
