    BiosciEdNet(BEN) is a catalyst for individual undergraduate biology educators to improve their teaching through resources, collaboration, and network building. However, it is also a catalyst for participating biology research-based and education-based organizations to build collaborations in terms of pedagogy, authentic assessment, multidisciplinary resources, and development of their individual digital-library collections. Materials in the digital library are designed primarily for undergraduate biology educators, including those who prepare K-12 faculty members. Also, materials are useful for graduate- and medical-school educators. The BEN Collaborative is spearheaded by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and composed of 11 professional societies and coalitions for biology education. It is developing a revolutionary approach for transforming biology teaching and learning in undergraduate and graduate institutions, as well as in professional schools using digital electronic resources.

    The Case Study Collection makes science relevant by presenting contemporary science problems about issues that students encounter in the news. The case studies in the collection are created by science and engineering faculty and facilitate a powerful pedagogical technique for teaching scientific concepts and content, while also advancing student process skills and critical thinking. The cases can be presented in several formats and taught in a variety of ways, ranging from the classical discussion method to problem-based or team learning, with their emphasis on small-group, cooperative learning strategies. The cases are published after undergoing peer review and revision, and all of the cases have teaching notes, including classroom management and assessment strategies with answer keys, and printable student background material. Permission is granted to modify and personalize the case study documents and instructors may tailor them to meet individual classroom needs. (less)
