They also speak to Assistant Professor Michelle Smith from the Maine Center for Research in STEM Education (The Maine RiSE Center), about new approaches to better engage with students, and to train them in the work of doing science rather than just memorisation; professional development and the privelege of teaching; and some of the pervasive misunderstandings in genetics.
