Bryan Monesson-Olson

Lecturer, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Spring 2017 Innovation Fellow

Fellowship Project & Instructional Interests

My goal is to create an online community for my large enrollment molecular biology class. Using forums, I hope to engage students in the course content in an open-ended way. In a large enrollment course, assignments where students write and receive feedback can be a challenge. I hope to give students meaningful interaction, engage them in the course content, and build community. For Biochemistry and Molecular Biology majors this is their first course in the major. Using online interaction and in-class group work, I hope to develop an intellectual community where student discussion continues well after the course is completed.
