Institute for Biology Education

Madison, Wisconsin - United States

Biology literacy means whole-person, whole-life learning in biology-beyond the boundaries of any classroom or campus. It requires innovative programs, resources, and collaborations that help sharpen the tools for scientific inquiry while connecting them with real-world situations. This not only improves the practice of science, it also contributes to a more informed and active citizenry and a flourishing planet. Toward this end, the Institute for Biology Education works in partnership to increase the effectiveness of biology education and promote the success of all biological sciences students, at UW-Madison and beyond. Institute for Biology Education provides collaborative leadership, programming, services, and resources that empower educators and learners at all levels, and we value and incorporate diversity, innovation, engaged scholarship, and community building as important tools for accomplishing our goals.

The Institute's primary areas of activity are:
- Programs and Services for Bioscience Undergraduates
- Outreach Programs for K-12 Educators & Students and the General Public
