Course in human mate selection wins Science magazine prize

making an important discovery about the scientific process: It involves trial and error.

Despite any initial discomfort with the curriculum's new way of learning, the students who experience it often come back to Foster after they've finished the class to say how much they learned and how helpful the module was to them as they continued in school and transferred to other programs. Foster says they find they are more comfortable with their own ideas and with articulating them, rather than focusing on whether they have memorized correct answers.

Content that so many students report back about what they derived from the class, Foster says she hopes that winning the IBI prize and having an essay published in Science will help more colleagues to "warm up to this pedagogy and incorporate it into their curriculum." Students who acquire the skills of problem-based learning can lose them in more conventional science classes where lecture and memorization are the rule. "A more consistent development of these skills over time would be great," Foster says.
