ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses undergraduate biology education. She argues that in many colleges across the U.S., undergraduate biology does not reflect the advances made in biological research, which have produced a body of biological knowledge that has continued to grow exponentially, or education research, which has revealed insights about effective teaching strategies. An in-depth discussion on three initiatives for improving the undergraduate biology experience for students, including revisions to the Advanced Placement (AP) Biology course and exam by the U.S. College Entrance Examination Board, is presented.
