This symposium will focus on teaching practice and education research related to biochemistry and molecular biology. As scientists in the molecular life sciences we use evidence and data to inform our worldview. Similarly, formal or informal data can be used to inform and improve our teaching practice. We invite those teaching classroom or laboratory courses in the molecular life sciences to join this conversation about teaching innovations and education research in biochemistry. Although formal research methods are not required, we encourage all symposium speakers to include some form of assessment in their presentation. Examples include results from surveys, exam questions, student interviews, or formal assessment instruments.
