Courses may also be taken through our non-degree program for those who just want to update content knowledge or earn a few graduate-level credits.

       

      BIOC 570 Applications of Cell & Molecular Biology for Teachers (formerly BIOC 623c Biology Update 1: Molecular & Cellular Biology topics). ) This is a fully online course designed for in-service science teachers who need to develop a deeper understanding of central ideas in cell and molecular biology. Core topics include structure-function relationships, gene expression, membrane biology, cell structure, and regulation of cell division. May be co-convened with BIOC 470. Instructor: Lisa Rezende, Ph.D. Course runs June 2-July 25. 3 units of graduate credit. Cost: TBA.
       
      BIOC 571 Ecological Principles for Teachers (formerly BIOC 623d Biology Update 2: Ecology & Evolutionary Biology topics). Principles of ecology with a focus on applications and current research appropriate for secondary school biology teachers. This totally online course is designed for prospective and in-service science teachers who wish to develop a deeper understanding of ecology. Basic themes include how organisms interact with other organisms and their environment, factors that influence the size and stability of populations, how geography affects biodiversity, and the application of these principles to current ecological issues including global warming and invasive species. Course may co-convene with BIOC 471. Instructor: Maureen Sieberg, Ph.D. Course runs June 2-July 25. 3 units of credit. Cost: TBA
       
      BIOC 651 Biology of Nutrition for Teachers. In this online course students will explore topics related to nutrition presented in the context of human biology. Topics of study include the biochemistry of nutrition, digestion, absorption, and metabolism of nutrients. Students will learn the nutritional, metabolic, and physiological significance of the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, lipids, vitamins, major minerals, trace elements, and non-nutrient substances. Instructors: Lisa Elfring, Ph.D. and Laurie Cale, M.S. Course runs June 2-July 25. 3 units of credit. Cost: TBA
       

      CHEM 570A Advanced Chemistry I. Fundamental principles of physical chemistry as applied to chemical systems of central importance in our world. This totally online course is designed for in-service teachers who need to develop a deeper understanding of central ideas in physical chemistry. Core topics include thermodynamic and chemical kinetics. Instructor: Vicente Talanquer, Ph.D. 3 units of graduate-level credit. Course runs June 2-July 25. Cost: TBA 

       

      CHEM 571C Topics in Energy and Evolution. This totally online course focuses on the discussion of the chemical principles related to non-renewable and sustainable energy sources. This course is designed for teachers who need to develop a deeper understanding of central ideas in biochemistry. Core topics include structure-function relationships in biologically important macromolecules and metabolism. Instructor: Amy Graham, Ph.D. 3 units of graduate-level credit. Course runs June 2-July 25. Cost: TBA
