Penick, John E., Ed.; Dunkhase, John A., Ed.
Fifteen innovative college science programs based on survey results about perceptions of excellence in college science teaching are presented. The goals, program origins, special features of the programs, evaluations, and conclusions are described for each. Discussed are the commonalities among this collection of 15 college science programs and some concerns. Programs include zoo biology, microbiology, biology for majors, biology for non-majors, field experience, anatomy and physiology, chemistry for non-scientists, analytical chemistry, physical sciences, applied geology, science mentors, interactive video, health-science, environmental education, and cooperative education.
