Abstract

iThink Biology has been developed with the idea that it will first serve as a supplement rather than a replacement to existing textbooks, since our curricula are rather rigid. The resource focuses on building capacities, using content as a springboard for students to develop capacities in the scientific process, quantitative reasoning, reading and interpreting, and problem solving. The resource emphasises the idea that solutions to biological problems are interdisciplinary, and that a narrow disciplinary approach can have unforeseen consequences. We highlight that no problem is clear cut, as the world is a complex and changing system. Seemingly disconnected components of the natural world can have serious impacts over large spatio-temporal scales. Finally, the resource also tries to encourage independence in learning amongst students: an idea that is not highlighted enough in India.
