   Abstract = {This article provides a summary of the ideas discussed at
             the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Society for Integrative and
             Comparative Biology society-wide symposium on Leading
             Students and Faculty to Quantitative Biology through Active
             Learning. It also includes a brief review of the recent
             advancements in incorporating active learning approaches
             into quantitative biology classrooms. We begin with an
             overview of recent literature that shows that active
             learning can improve students’ outcomes in Science,
             Technology, Engineering and Math Education disciplines. We
             then discuss how this approach can be particularly useful
             when teaching topics in quantitative biology. Next, we
             describe some of the recent initiatives to develop hands-on
             activities in quantitative biology at both the graduate and
             the undergraduate levels. Throughout the article we provide
             resources for educators who wish to integrate active
             learning and technology into their classrooms.},
