You will find links to each module in the left-hand menu of this page.  Please join this community to receive updates about upcoming TCAP graduate courses. Plant Breeding strategies is an entry level 6 week module that will challenge students to design a plant breeding program differentiating between a variety of approaches.  Next offering: TBD Entering Mentoring is an 8 week module that will be offered next in winter of 2014.  The Entering Mentoring Seminar will accelerate the process of learning to be a mentor by providing an intellectual framework, an opportunity to experiment with different mentoring techniques, a forum to discuss mentoring dilemmas, and second-hand exposure to more students and situations through group sharing.Attendees must be actively involved in mentoring a student to participate. Quantitative Genetics was last offered in April of 2012.    Basic elements of quantitative genetics will be presented so that students might fully understand implications to plant breeding. Practical experience in linkage and QTL mapping will also be provided.  Next offering TBD. Association mapping will be offered late in the fall of 2012, registration will be September of 2012.  Topics to be covered will include: Review of Quantitative Genetics and Molecular Breeding, Methods and Software for Association Mapping, Design and Interpretation of QTL mapping, Genomic Selection and Comparison of MAS, Association Breeding and Genomic selection.  Pre-requisites - Plant Breeding strategies and Quantitative genetics.  

  • Science for Educators Lifelong Learning Community
    Christine E Haney Douglass Program Coordinator 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
