Dev Tutorials are video recordings of developmental biologists describing key concepts in the field. These tutorials are primarily authored by Drs. Michael Barresi and Scott Gilbert who are the co-authors of the 11th Ed. of the textbook “Developmental Biology” by Sinauer Associates. These lessons are to complement the chapters within this text book and serve as a basic coverage of these key concepts.
Purpose: Teachers are encouraged to use these Dev Tutorials to supplement the text and provide an opportunity to offer a “Flipped Classroom” approach to teaching Dev Bio. Students watch these Dev Tutorials before coming to class; then, while in class, teachers can incorporate more active learning approaches such as interactive case study problems that are also offered with the 11th Ed.
*These Dev Tutorials are the sole production of Smith College and will always be freely available to all from this website.
