PIBERG is a scholarly group of Purdue faculty, staff, students, and affiliate scholars who support each other as we investigate teaching and learning in the life sciences. Our goal is to bridge the gap between science education research and its application to help students learn about biology or biochemistry as a research endeavor.

The PIBERG Instructional Innovations series contains research-based instructional materials (e.g. teaching materials, tutorials, workshop handouts, assessments, rubrics, etc.) created by PIBERG members.
