Biologists, educators recognize excellence in evolution education
Date:10/13/2008

an idea as there is in science it is a great gift to give to students," says Dr. Moore.

Dr. Moore has worked beyond the classroom to improve public understanding of science and to help K-12 teachers continue to develop skills that help them effectively teach science. He has taught several summer workshops for K-12 teachers, has spoken to local groups of teachers and school districts, and has organized a Learning Abroad course titled "Evolution and the Biology of the Galapagos." Additionally, Dr. Moore was a founding member of the Minnesota Citizens for Science Education, a grassroots organization that defends the teaching of evolution in local schools.

Dr. Moore has worked to build dialogue between science and religious groups. "I grew up with, understand, and respect religious traditions. I strongly oppose the teaching of creationism in science classes, not only because it is not science, but it is unlawful," says Moore, "Distorting science to placate particular religious views is not only bad pedagogy; it also belittles faith."

Dr. Mark Decker, a colleague at the University of Minnesota, is pleased that Moore is being recognized. Dr. Decker says of Moore's accomplishments, "I have been with Randy on campus when we encounter a former student that stops and thanks Randy for his class, and whenever I have his former students in my classes, they are all effusive in their praise for him." Decker further commends Moore for his scholarship, noting that he works to publish timely research on evolution education that is also relevant to instructors.

Dr. Moore earned his bachelor's degree in biology from Texas A&M University, a master's degree in botany from the University of Georgia, and his PhD in biology from the University of California at Los Angeles.

Previous honors and awards for Moore include the Case/Carnegie Teacher of the Year (University of Minnesota), Honorary Member of National Association of Biology Te
