Primary Instructor:

Undergraduates who previously have taken an introductory biochemistry course act as TAs for Introductory Biochemistry (BIOLOGY 311). TAs meet with the instructor for a two-hour class each week for presentations and discussions of teaching biochemistry. TAs also prepare an oral report on a recent advance in biochemistry, which they present to their peers and the instructor. The major roles of the TAs are to examine the students on their mastery of unit material and to help the students with explanations supplementary to the textbook. At the completion of an instructor-generated written quiz, the student and TA grade the quiz together. TAs learn considerable biochemistry by repeated teachings of unit materials and, in addition, profit from their experience as teachers and evaluators.
