Teaching Cell Signaling
What should a class or course in cell signaling include?
1 September 2006
For instructors that are just starting a new faculty position and teaching for the first time, one of the hardest parts can be creating the course syllabus and deciding what is the essential information the students should know at the end of the semester or course. Share your experiences and opinions regarding what you consider the core concepts in cell signaling.
What lectures should be included in an undergraduate or graduate cell signaling course or cell signaling section of a course?
What primary reference materials, labs, or textbooks do you find most useful?
See Iyengar et al. for a syllabus for the course-- "Cell Signaling Systems: A Course for Graduate Students". Most lectures from that course are also available as lecture notes for preparing similar lectures. Other types of resources may include thought experiments (see Adler or Adler and Schwartz) or undergraduate laboratory exercises (see Adler et al.).
If you have Teaching Resources that you would like to submit to Science's STKE, send the editors a feedback with a brief description of the resources you would like to contribute. If you prefer to simply share suggestions, please send a response to this forum.
