Rice, Stanley A. .
What are the most important things for students to learn in our introductory courses?.
The science of biology in general, and botany in particular, is too broad for realistic coverage in a general course for non-majors. This being the case, what concepts and information would be most important to include in a nonmajors course? The organizer invites comments, experiences, and ideas from participants; these ideas will help to inform the writing of textbooks, and the classroom work of the participants. For example, how important are world issues (medical, environmental, biotechnological), how important is evolution, and which topics should be covered in detail vs. only briefly?
