Principles of Biology

Practicum student teachers

Each section of Principles of Biology has two faculty instructors, two graduate student instructors and up to two undergraduate practicum instructors.  If you took BIOL198 and made an A or B in the class, you can become a practicum.  This is great experience for anyone who may be planning a job that requires explaining complex processes to people, or if you plan to go on to graduate school or become a teacher.  Many practicums are junior or senior pre-health majors who gain a greater understanding of the material by teaching it before they take advanced placement exams like the MCAT. 

Here are some of the expectations for practicum students: guidelines (PDF)
