Learning Online

"The other participants were really engaging so we were able to delve into the readings at a deeper level. I loved the tree building activity and the sex and the single guppy activity. I will be using them in my class. The whole course gave me a better understanding of evolution for my classroom teaching and a framework within which to teach evolution. I LOVED this class!!!" —high school biology teacher

"This was my first online course. I felt that the discussions were great. In a traditional class I don't get as much independent thought. It opened my eyes to many different ways of thinking about evolution." —high school biology teacher
