Jeffrey Blanchard

Associate Professor, Biology

May 2017 Innovation Fellow

Hello

For over a decade I have taught bioinformatics-related courses that focused on individual-centered learning in which each student works on their own computer (although the students are welcome to discuss the problem sets amongst themselves). These courses focus on hands-on practical skills for analyzing genetic data and include discussion of recent research articles. My instructional goal is to integrate team-based learning approaches into these courses using to enhance student engagement and learning.
