Cyberlearning at Community Colleges (C3): Faculty Scholarship, E-science, and Open Curriculum.

The emerging emphasis on cyberlearning a comprehensive view of how networked computing and communications tools mediate learning challenges many of our existing notions of science education. The Cyberlearning at Community Colleges (C3) Project provides structured professional development opportunities that engage undergraduate biology faculty in exploring 21st Century teaching practices. Face-to-face workshops are combined with project-based online collaborations to support the development of innovative curricula for introductory biology courses. Instructional materials emphasize the effective use of existing digital library materials, networked computing and communications technologies, and E-science resources. The C3 Project Digital Library Partnerships include NSDL, MicrobLibrary, BEN, APS Archive, OERCommons, AMSER, and BioQUEST. Workshops are held in conjunction with our Scientific and Teaching Society Partners that include ASMCUE, HAPS, NABT, BioQUEST, and BSA.
