Teaching History, Philosophy, and Social Studies of Biology
A pre-conference workshop organized by the Education Committee of the
International Society for History, Philosophy, and Social Studies of Biology
Quinnipaic College, Wednesday July 18, 2001
Through their teaching, writing, and public presentations many ISHPSSBers promote the constructively critical analysis of science among students, practicing scientists, science studies scholars, and the wider public. The idea of a pre-conference workshop is for ISHPSSBers to share how we address this challenge. To get the ball rolling the Education Committee has arranged three presenters for the 2001 meetings. We hope this will incite others to offer to share their wares before and at future ISHPSSB meetings. A lunch meeting will be held during the conference to plan future pre-conference education workshops.
This workshop consists of three experiential sessions. That is, instead of the session leaders telling us how they teach, participants experience the kinds of teaching the session leaders are exploring and reflect on the pedagogical issues raised. Participants are encouraged to attend the full day to compare and contrast the different approaches.
Logistics: Indicate on the ISHPSSB Conference registration form that you will attend the workshop. Indicate also if you need Tuesday night dormitory accommodation (with breakfast and lunch) available at the same (low) cost. There will be no cost for the workshop, but please email if you will be attending so sufficient copies of the handouts can be made.

TABLE OF CONTENTS Background: The... Addition Step... Addition Step... Impact of... ... References The American Biology Teacher: Vol. 62, No. 5, pp. 374-377. Penny L. Bernstein Dissection has become the focus of intense debate in the last several years. As a biologist and an educator working with inquiry approaches to teaching science, I feel it may be time to redefine the goals and objectives of this activity, and involve students in determining when and how it should be used. I would like to report on an inquiry-based activity that is designed to broaden the definition and scope of dissection. It uses the well-liked "peanut observation activity" as a lead-in for student discussion of the pros and cons of dissection and for learning about the benefits of this procedure. The peanut observation activity has become a favorite for many teachers. It was introduced in the last 10 years as one of many hands-on activities designed to teach students the so-called "process skills" of sciencemaking observations, forming hypotheses, experimenting, analyzing results and drawing conclusions. Generally, the peanut activity is used to promote observation skills. ). Indeed, groups such as Psychologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (

Asia 2001 Summer Expedition -China
July 1, 2001 thru July 15, 2001 The Chinese Civilization has been a world leader in agriculture for thousands of years. Currently, China is among the world's largest producers of grain, rice, potatoes, sorghum, peanuts, tea, millet, barley, and pork. China is also the country of origin of many important U.S. commercial crops and is a very important source of germplasm (plant and animal) and biological control agents, which are of great benefit to U.S. agriculture. China is endowed with an incredibly diverse range of natural animal life and vegetation. There are approximately 30,000 species of seed plants and 2,500 species of forest trees. The diversity of ecosystems found in China support a correspondingly diverse range of flora and fauna. Yet unprotected forest areas in China are diminishing due to intensive farmland cultivation, the reclamation of wetlands, damming of rivers, industrial and rural waste, and desertification. Other tensions exist between rural ethnic minorities and urban industry representatives on topics ranging from water access to land use. At the center of these discussions is the role of agriculture. This expedition will give participants ample opportunity to gain a historical perspective of agriculture in China, and also provide a context within which to contemplate current challenges faced by the Chinese, challenges with global implications.

Biology is the study of life and living things. It is actually a multi-science composed of many disciplines unifiedby the fact that all living things - plants, animals, and microorganisms - follow the same fundamental laws of heredity, reproduction, growth, development, self-maintenance and response. Zoology focuses on interests in animal biology, covering a spectrum from traditional natural history and field biology to the mammalian biology underlying medical research. In spite of its traditional place as a subdivision of biology, zoology has, through its animal orientation, fostered some of the most relevant and exciting research being conducted today: in immunology and immunogenetics, in hormonal action, in genetic regulation in development, and in animal behavior and social structure. Many of these are concerns shared by functionally oriented departments or fields, but zoology is the focal point of all. Biologists study all aspects of living organiams and the relationship of animals, plants, insects and microbes to their environment. Many specialize in ornithology (the study of birds), microbiology (the study of microscopic organisms), or some other area. All have in common the study of life. Many are involved in research and development. Some conduct basic research to increase knowledge of living organisms, while others in applied research use this knowledge to develop new medicines, increase crop yields, improve the environment, and other such activities. Biochemists study the chemical composition and behavior of living things, and may study the effects of food, hormones, or drugs on various organisms. They may work in the areas of medicine, nutrition, or agriculture, however, most work in basic research which involves such things as weighing, filtering, distilling, drying, and culturing (growing) organisms. Sometimes they design special apparatus or equipment necessary to their work. Some Biochemists work in applied research which uses thediscoveries of basic research to solve practical problems.

Concept Activities: Confronting Misconceptions Investigative Activities: Scientific Reasoning and Inquiry ... Current Workshop Biology Courses On-Line
Course Activities
In order to help our students achieve the course's goals, we felt that our course had to: address students' misconceptions that could hinder further learning; allow students to experience scientific inquiry firsthand; and ask students to use what they learned to effectively make decisions that they may actually face now or in the future. Each of the three primary elements of a workshop course, concept activities investigative activities , and issue activities , is designed to achieve one of these objectives. Assemblies replace lectures and help students tie together the ideas they have encountered in the workshops and construct an integrated overview of biology. Concept activities aim to teach students the key concepts of biology, through discovery and hypothesis-testing exercises, which are often designed to confront fundamental misconceptions. Investigative activities emphasize the skills and attitudes necessary for scientific inquiry and an understanding of current scientific controversies, and require students to evaluate, design, and conduct scientific studies and present their findings in writing. Issues activities require students to use conceptual knowledge and scientific reasoning skills, and their own values, in addressing important personal and social issues. Through library research, group discussion, writing, and class presentations, students spend much of the term exploring a current social issue that relates to the term's theme, such as pesticide regulation, forest management, or genetic engineering.

"This class has helped me in writing argumentative papers and in thinking for myself - interpreting things in my own way." "I have learned the most from our issue groups. Reading about one issue from so many standpoints has given me a greater understanding of it. It has taught me to regard science with a critical eye." -workshop students
Issues Projects at Other Institutions
Issues Projects:
Improving Nonmajors' Views of Science and Critical Thinking Skills
In our new introductory non-majors biology course known as "Workshop Biology," we have established decision-making as the central goal of the course. We want students to see that biological concepts can, and must, be applied to decisions in their everyday lives, as they make lifestyle choices, consume goods and natural resources, vote, and raise the next generation. However, this goes beyond introducing every lecture with a newspaper article showing the topic's current relevance, beyond even taking time out from regular class activities to discuss current issues. We have found that most students simply cannot use information to make effective decisions without good models, practice, feedback, and explicit instruction in critical thinking. A major portion of our course, the Issues Project, is devoted to giving students the skills and confidence they need to effectively deal with important issues on their own. The Issues Project requires groups of students to research a particular area in depth, with the aim of making a personal decision about a socially important scientific issue. In biology, many issues of social importance (e.g. whether to ban smoking in public, or how to deal with conflicts between economic development and the protection of biodiversity) rest on issues currently being debated by research scientists (whether second-hand smoke causes cancer, or whether a certain species should be classified endangered). Students dealing with the social aspect of such issues must also be able to deal with the scientific aspect. Some issues contain less scientific controversy, such as problems prompted by new developments in medicine and biotechnology (labeling of genetically engineered vegetables, for example), but these still require a thorough understanding of the biology involved.

Biology professor uses evolving technology to teach evolution
In July, Craig Hood, Ph.D., associate professor of biological sciences, attended an international symposium at the Euro-American Mammal Congress in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Hood was one of eight presenters to discuss geometric morphometric approaches to the study of size and sexual dimorphism in mammals. He was the only one to present a paper on this subject from an undergraduate university. The support of the administration and the faculty also flows to the students. For example, Hood works closely with his students who assist in his research and conduct statistical analysis. He says he believes that research is an integral part of learning. Hood encourages his students to think scientifically and challenges them to ask questions about scientific issues. His dedication to teaching and research, fueled by his desire to understand things, has motivated his students to become involved and work collaboratively. His current projects include studying the geographic variation and the impact of environmental stress in Louisiana muskrats and evaluating the evolution of life history traits in Gulf Coast populations of the black-tailed shiner. In his research on muskrats and minnows, Hood investigates how the populations have responded to various environmental and biological factors.
