Student opinion of instruction (SOI) is sought as an instrument to assess the impact of curricular enhancements in three upper level biology courses. Based on feedback received from student survey’s pedagogical changes will be made in these courses. One of the objectives of the targeted infusion project is to integrate biotechnology concepts in laboratory exercises to strengthen student’s mastery of core concepts in biological sciences. Introduction of a new course in scientific communication, mentored undergraduate research, mobile computing for data acquisition and integration of cyber-instruction to offer instructional modules and supplemental resources through Brightspace are likely to yield improved student success.
