SCOPE

The best way to predict the future is to invent it.
                 - Alan Kay

The SCOPE Project is an opportunity to participate in the construction and exploration of novel approaches to undergraduate biology education. We use the idea of a Problem Space as a curricular and pedagogical resource to support collaborative curriculum development and student driven scientific investigations. Problem Spaces link together existing e-science resources, web-based productivity and communication tools, and open educational resources in ways that promote communities of inquiry.

Emory SCOPE Workshop
The second SCOPE Workshop will be at the Emory Center for Science Education, January 7-9, 2009.

We are an interdisciplinary team including educators, scientists, curriculum specialists, educational technologists, and learners. Please consider learning more about the project, trying out some materials, and getting involved.
