Summary

This collection of papers presented at a conference organized by the Commission on Undergraduate Education in the Biological Sciences includes an account of the evolution of biology teaching and a discussion of its potential for bridging the gap between the "two cultures". Strategies for innovation are suggested, the results of a survey of teacher training given to biology teaching assistants are reported and six categories of activities that college teachers perform are postulated. Alternatives to the Ph.D. degree are discussed. Possible funding sources for projects designed to improve the quality of undergraduate biology teaching are outlined by representatives of the National Science Foundation, the Danforth Foundation, and the U.S. Office of Education. Reports of conference working groups on "Making the Teaching Experience a Learning Experience". "A Model Intern Program", and "Guidelines for a Degree for College Biology Teachers" conclude the report. (AL)
