Join instructors in the process of flipping a Biochemistry class. The lecture videos that students will watch before class are largely complete, and an intern would help develop in-class active learning activities to explore and apply content. The intern might also develop their own lecture videos if desired.
Semester(s): Spring, Fall
Institution: UW Madison
Intern background needed: Background in biochemical techniques
Will be open for internship if instruction is online due to COVID: Yes
Course: Biochemistry 551: Biochemical methods. Capstone, ~100 students, lecture/lab/seminar (specifically looking for help with the lecture)
Course info: Senior-level capstone lecture and lab course
Course time/day: Wed 11-11:50 (fall 2021)
Potential Guest Teaching Topics/Units: Units the intern could develop include: UV/Vis spectroscopy, fluorescence, protein purification, enzyme kinetics, ligand binding
Challenges a project might address include:
Teaching strategies currently used: The lectures use practice problems. The lab is a cohesive, semester-long research project including a research presentation, with some pairwise work.
Teaching strategies of interest: Active learning and additional inclusive practices
