  • Science for Educators Lifelong Learning Community
    Christine E Haney Douglass Program Coordinator chaney3@unl.edu University of Nebraska Lincoln
    Welcome! We have created this online learning community to offer a place for science teachers who are current graduate students, recent graduates and/or active professionals to share their ideas, lesson plans, publications and questions with others who are working to teach science. PLEASE JOIN THE SELF_PACED COURSES IN THE LEFT HAND MENU (free to join) TO SEE NEW JOB, GRANT & INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES. This was the best way we could manage the wealth of information. Please use this space to explore and share and submit only items you are comfortable with others using for free.  This location is meant to further the knowledge and experience of teaching science by learning, adjusting and adapting to what others before you have contributed. Feel free to contact us at any time to make suggestions or ask questions. We are so happy you have joined us and wish you much luck as you progress in your own professional knowledge! Kind Regards, Master of Applied Science, Science for Educators specialization team University of Nebraska Lincoln

    Deanna Leingang Deanna.Leingang@gmail.com
    Welcome to the new instructor testing community! This community will serve as a testing area for new passel instructors; you can practice editing different features of this community before starting to build your own class or community. If you do not yet have an instructor account and would like to use the Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary to create a class or community space, please contact us via the link below.  If you are a new instructor in contact with our team, we can grant you ownership access to this community. Please contact us using the link below if you do not yet have ownership access. To begin (and determine if you have access), click on the home icon in the upper right of your screen. Your homepage should have a list of all PASSeL communities you have created or joined. You should see "New Instructor Testing Community" under "My Owned Communities." You will see several options under the title, including View, which will bring you back to this page, and Edit. To see a complete list of the community editing tools and instructions for navigating your instructor account, click here.

    Making a Recombinant Plasmid
    This animation shows how a plasmid responsible for encoding a gene can be cut. The plasmid can be altered with the addition of linear DNA to form a recombinant plasmid to encode a new gene of interest. This is the first of four animations detailing the gene cloning process. The other three animations are Bacteria Transformation, Making a Library, and Screening a DNA Library.
