An Experience Teaching an Undergraduate Level Course in Biophysics
Feizabadi, Mitra Shojania
Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, v35 n1 p48-52 May 2009
The importance of including concepts, examples, and techniques from mathematics and the physical and information sciences in biology courses to fulfill the need of today's undergraduates has been the principle motivation for developing interdisciplinary biology-focused courses. Although this movement started many years ago, developing and offering courses like biophysics is still new in many liberal arts colleges. Taking advantage of the experiences gained by introducing an interdisciplinary course, simply titled Biophysics, this paper was developed to present the adapted structure, challenges, and useful factors to further develop such a course in order to heighten students' retention of the material.
