Microbiology art gallery shines creative light on course content

viruses

In 2011, Jane Holbrook and Mary Power from the Centre for Teaching Excellence organized a workshop for large class instructors: "Enjoying Your Large Class (Making the Most of Your Large Class)". An activity in this session was to "design a 'blended' activity (one that students participate in online and in class) to promote student engagement in a specific course topic". From this workshop and activity, the Microbiology Art Gallery was born.
