The much sought-after biology 100 relating to drugs, neuroscience, abuse, legality, and addiction will return this summer. After trying the virtual version last summer, we return to a 75:25 face to face version this summer. With classes Tues – Fri (and Fridays that are often virtual) we feel your students will want to know about this NW, 5 credit class option!
Who does it best serve?
* students who are NON science oriented,
* students who want to learn how to reinvigorate their skeptically critical science identities, * students who are even a bit science phobic,
* students who want to understand the ways in which science informs their lives and intertwines with their options,
* and students who want to dig into their own health care decisions as matters of personal responsibility.
During its peak, Biology 100 (Drugs and the Human Body) was enrolling ~150 students EVERY quarter and there were 20-30 on the wait list. With its sequestration to summer quarter, the peer-to-peer network has not been as strong.
