Title BiosciEdNet (BEN): Digital Library Portal for Teaching and Learning in the Biological Sciences
Description BiosciEdNet(BEN) is a catalyst for individual undergraduate biology educators to improve their teaching through resources, collaboration, and network building. However, it is also a catalyst for participating biology research-based and education-based organizations to build collaborations in terms of pedagogy, authentic assessment, multidisciplinary resources, and development of their individual digital-library collections. Materials in the digital library are designed primarily for undergraduate biology educators, including those who prepare K-12 faculty members. Also, materials are useful for graduate- and medical-school educators. The BEN Collaborative is spearheaded by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and composed of 11 professional societies and coalitions for biology education. It is developing a revolutionary approach for transforming biology teaching and learning in undergraduate and graduate institutions, as well as in professional schools using digital electronic resources.
