This site, developed as a collaboration between the Library and the Biological Sciences Department and maintained by Prof. Jeremy Seto, contains many wonderfully rich Open Educational Resources (OERs) for students of biology at City Tech (and beyond!). OERs are materials for teaching and learning that are not licensed under copyright and thus able to be freely accessed and shared. (For more information, see the library’s great guide to OERs). The Biology OER contains textual and multimedia resources organized by topic, including descriptions, images, and videos of different biological processes, research tools, and class activities. Take a look and enjoy this excellent resource!
The Biological Sciences Department has created an excellent site on the OpenLab, which is full of resources, news, and helpful information. It’s well-structured so that everything is easy to find, both on the home page, and in the top menu. They also have a helpful feed of upcoming departmental events and deadlines in the sidebar. Take a look!
We’re excited to see both Bridges to the Baccalaureate, and the program it’s part of, Strengthening Research Interactions through Digital Expressions (STRIDE), on the OpenLab! STRIDE provides a digital space for student and faculty research resources, and the Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program provides academic support and research mentoring to associates degree students in Biology, Chemistry, or Psychology, who will transfer to Brooklyn College to finish their degrees. Their well-designed site includes plenty of information on the program, and visitors can download the Bridges brochure and application forms. Students who are interested in applying should do so by their February 28 deadline!
