Laboratory Applications in Microbiology: A Case Study Approach 4 9781259705229 Laboratory Applications in Microbiology: A Case Study Approach has been designed to help create accomplished microbiologists. Case studies illustrate the applicability of skills in the microbiology lab, while still holding the attention of every student who has ever said “do we have to know this?” Each exercise has been structured from the bottom up, scaffolding knowledge and relying on metacognition to ensure students understand the goals of an exercise, anticipate errors, acquire the skills needed for success, and eventually master the topic at hand.;/div>

About the Author

Barry Chess

Barry Chess has taught microbiology at Pasadena City College for more than twenty years. Prior to that, while studying at the California State University and the University of California, he conducted research into the expression of genes involved in the development of muscle and bone.

At PCC, beyond his usual presence in the microbiology laboratory and lecture hall, Barry has taught majors and non-majors biology, developed a course in human genetics, helped to found a biotechnology program on campus, and regularly supervises students completing independent research projects in the life sciences.Over the past several years, his interests have focused on innovative methods of teaching that lead to greater student success. He has written and reviewed cases for the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science and contributed to the book Science Stories You Can Count On: 51 Case Studies with Quantitative Reasoning in Biology. Barry has presented papers and talks on the effective use of case studies in the classroom, the use of digital tools to enhance learning, and for several years served as a scientific advisor for the American Film Institute. In addition to Laboratory Applications in Microbiology, Barry is coauthor of the lecture text Foundations in Microbiology, now in its tenth edition. He is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Society for Microbiology, and the Skeptics Society. Barry was profiled in the book, What Scientists Actually Do, where he was illustrated as a young girl with pigtails, about to stick a fork into an electrical outlet.
