Want to make college science faculty really nervous? Tell them to stop lecturing and start telling stories, instead.

That’s the advice that science faculty hear when they participate in one of the “Case Studies in Science” workshops at the University at Buffalo, directed by Clyde (Kipp) Herreid, Ph.D., SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences. “It’s quite a challenge and some of the professors get very nervous,” admits Herreid.
