By May 19, 2021June 29th, 2021No Comments

Like all UC Berkeley faculty, lecturer Robin Ball (PhD ‘07) had to abruptly move her classes online when the campus went into the pandemic lockdown last March. This spring, she began teaching Bio 1AL for the first time—a double challenge since the lab class was taught remotely for the first time last semester. Bio 1A/1AL is taken by all MCB majors and enrolls an average of 600 students each semester. This semester it enrolled 750 students.
