Deena Wassenberg is a biology educator whose goal is to increase biology literacy and the diversity of individuals who participate in biology. Deena’s instruction aims to empower students to have informed conversations about biology with their colleagues and loved ones. To do this she incorporates student-centered learning in all her classes. She believes the real test of a biology education is the successful incorporation of biology knowledge into students’ lives outside the classroom.
