"Issues in Social Biology: Diet to Disease, DNA to deforestation" educates students in both biology and issues important to society.
I have been writing a textbook, "The Life of the Green Plant," on plant and crop physiology for students in applied plant sciences and similar areas that is detailed yet easy to understand by undergraduates in these fields.
I am educating business leaders of the future about the role of law in decision making.
This Biology Journal Club is intended for Biology undergraduates who wish to become familiar with the scientific literature in modern biology by learning to read, analyze, understand, and present summaries of original research papers in biology.
We developed web-based tools for teaching microscopy to students in our course.
By offering an introductory level horticulture class, "Plants and Human Well Being" that exposes students to the multiple ways that we interact with plants and plant products I am increasing their awareness of the importance of plants in our lives as well as the many non-traditional career and avocational opportunities within the field of Horticulture.
A new journal club was initiated for undergraduate students interested in neuroscience. The purpose was to introduce undergraduates to the original scientific literature through selection, reading, analyzing, and explaining original papers of high profile in an undergraduate setting.
Three 3-year fellowships will help train plant breeders to use modern techniques to improve the abundance and safety of the U.S. food supply in a sustainable way.
This proposal seeks funding to develop a “virtual drawing board” for Landscape Architecture. Its goal is to create a more interactive and dynamic classroom and allow for feedback from clients to be gathered iteratively, regardless of their proximity to Cornell. It will expose students to a wider range of national and international projects and help establish collaborations within and outside of Cornell. It will also make instruction on technical courses more dynamic, interactive and engaging. Increased feedback will result in more relevant and accountable student work.
I am developing a plan to balance undergraduate student population in biological engineering and environmental engineering majors for Fall 2010.
I am implementing a plan to raise overall quality of biological engineering majors, established in 2008.
