Instructor and student-created movie clips for Developmental Biology

Alyssa Perz-Edwards, Lecturing Fellow, Biology, Arts & Sciences

Project Description

Perz-Edwards created digitized movie clips that her students used to explore experimental methods and embryo development. The students accessed the streaming video through Blackboard, which provided the students with a better understanding of processes they used to plan and execute experiments during lab sessions.

The availability of video outside of class allowed the instructor to use class time for discussion and other activities. Students also collected video and time lapse data in the class to use in presentations describing their work.  A poster describing the project is available.
