EDSCI 6130 The Great Diseases: Teaching Infectious Diseases

This course provides the background to teach about infectious diseases (ID) using The Great Diseases curriculum, a Biology II course developed by our partnership with Boston teachers and Tufts Medical School scientists. Participants will investigate life-relevant scientific questions using authentic scientific practices to explore host-microbe interactions and challenges of identifying and treating ID. Participants will consider a variety of inquiry-based approaches to teach about ID and will learn to modify lessons for their classrooms.
