Concept Learning Inventories (CLIs) are powerful tools currently used in educational research in order measure student learning.  Many CLIs have been developed for a variety of disciplines including physics, molecular biology, introductory biology, microbiology, etc.  However, a CLI for a single semester biochemistry course, such as BC351, does not exist.  My current reserach involves developing a Concept Learning Inventory for a single semester biochemistry course BC351.  In addition, I currently teach Principles of Biochemistry BC351, Comprehensive Biochemistry Laboratory BC404 and mentor biochemistry students for their Thesis BC499. I also serve on the Undergraduate Affairs Committee and advise biochemistry students.
