Majors General Biology: Addressing the Unprepared Student & Training the Scientific Mind


Dr. Andy Baldwin  |   April 29, 2021
  

More and more often, it seems as though biology majors enter their first class ill-equipped for course success. In these cases, the answer to material mastery lies not in creating piles of note cards to memorize, but in guiding thought processes to help them think the way professional scientists think.

Join Dr. Andy Baldwin as he explores how to assist overwhelmed biology majors in concept-based learning, training and equipping them not only for success in their first major's course, but in every course that follows.

Andrew Baldwin holds a Ph.D. in Quantitative Biology and spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at Texas Tech University. He has earned awards for both teaching and research. He currently teaches full time at Mesa Community College. Baldwin intentionally left the high-pressure research, ‘publish or perish’ universities to teach at the community college level because this is where he knew he could make a greater impact on science. He believes two-year, open-door institutions are where inspiring students and establishing a strong foundation for future courses is most critical.

Dr. Baldwin is the author of Biology: Life as We Know It, published by Kendall Hunt.
