The Society for the Advancement of Biology Education Research was founded in 2010 by a committee of 30 scholars from throughout the United States. Applicants must have a grade point average of at least 2.5 on a four.0 scale for the General Education element of undergraduate studies or have completed the requirements for a baccalaureate diploma with a minimum grade point common of 2.5 on a four.zero scale from any school or college accredited by a regional accrediting affiliation, as outlined by State Board of Education rule, with a minimum of 60 credit hours.
In the past, he has served as Adjunct Instructor at the Department of Mathematics and Science Education of Illinois Institute of Technology, Book Review Editor of the research journal Science & Education (Springer), and coordinator for science training for grades K-6 in addition to member of the Department of Educational Research and Development of Geitonas School, in Greece, where he also taught biology and nature of science to secondary college and IB DP students.
This assembly structured the way forward for SABER by identifying current advances in undergraduate biology education research, defining important areas for future investigations, and constructing a key community of researchers who will interact in collaborative endeavors aimed to advance evidence-based mostly instructing and studying in undergraduate biology schooling.
We hope that by this effort we are able to construction a vibrant network of Biology Education Researchers that will provide the vision to guide future research efforts, build collaborations with classroom practitioners from all levels of higher education and conduct hypothesis driven research that will garner the proof wanted to higher inform our classroom practices in biology.
We see SABER as a society that will help coordinate and promote the numerous teams doing biology education analysis ( curriculum growth, laboratory administrators, school improvement, introductory biology, and all the sub-disciplines of biology) whose goals are to remodel the undergraduate biology classroom and laboratory via speculation driven analysis.
