Evolution Simulation Model — Matt Landis

Evolution Simulation Model
Technology used: NetLogo
Course: BIOL0140 Ecology and Evolution
Learning objective: Allow students to experimentally investigate evolution through a computer simulation
Reason for using the technology: After using EcoBeaker in their labs for several years, Professor Matt Landis and his colleagues wanted to try a different simulation model. Because EcoBeaker is proprietary software, the instructors weren’t able to answer students’ questions about how the model worked. They also weren’t able to fix software bugs.  Using NetLogo allowed Matt to build and modify the model to directly address pedagogical needs. Continue reading
