Project Detail


Frontiers of Science

Partner(s): David Helfand, Darcy Kelley et al. - Columbia College

Originally spearheaded by Professors David Helfand and Darcy Kelley in 2002, a team of 30 faculty and science fellows continue to develop Frontiers of Science, a new science core curriculum course for Columbia College. Students in the course attend lectures from a variety of disciplines including astronomy, biodiversity, neuroscience, and climate change, as well as small seminar sections to discuss concepts from the lectures and associated readings. Students also complete related activities and problem sets intended to develop core competencies in scientific thinking and methodology. CCNMTL produced an online version of Helfand's course text and coordinated the course websites for all course sections. The Center also supported the design and implementation of course evaluations.
