Biology During lecture, I embed bonus questions pertaining to information that we’ve covered during class. Students respond using their clickers, and they earn points toward their final point total for each question that they answer correctly.

If a majority of the students miss the answer (as in this example—the correct answer is C), I will review the material, often taking an alternative approach to my original explanation.

Unformatted text preview: Afterwards, we discuss the correct answers. In this series of survey slides, I set the clicker software to record student responses in the “Anonymous” mode. In this mode, student identification is not linked with their individual clickers. Since students know this, they are more likely to respond to the prompts honestly. Unsurprisingly, more students agree with the first statement regarding the use of gene therapy to treat debilitating genetic disorders than with the other two statements. As the consensus of the class changes with each prompt, I invite students to discuss why their individual opinion might have changed. As discussion ensues, it becomes obvious to them just how slippery a slope this area of bioethics is....

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
