Studies in course design have indicated that it is much more efficient to implement an active learning environment for students. Participation through discussions and activities results in a greater intake of knowledge by the students. This course was designed to incorporate multidisciplinary skills in the classroom. The History of Biology integrates a scientific lab section with a history class. Microscopes is a sample unit in the course and incorporates scientific concepts and historical information.The lab section introduces the students to the lesson by having them use critical thinking skills in order to grasp important concepts prior to the lecture. Other project ideas have been included to show an approach to a different historical time period with modern scientific advancements.
