Abstract

With laboratory training limited for students that do not have access to medical schools/laboratory facilities and high-end research equipment, many scientists-in-training are limited in their choices due to their location with regard to those facilities. While participation in active research laboratories is the best form of instruction offered in the field of molecular biology, access to laboratories and their resources is often limited.This paper explores the process of material development and assessment plans of the content designers; a pilot case study of twenty advanced biology teachers who embark on learning molecular biology over a four-month period through online training materials and working side-by-side with medical researchers in a laboratory is described. Feedback suggested that current professional development options did not adequately connect to the active research problems and local context of most interest to teachers and students.
