Biology

Articulation committees normally meet once a year to share information and engage in discussions related to curricular matters, particularly those affecting student mobility.

The Biology Articulation Committee affirms and endorses the teaching of evolution in postsecondary education as follows:

"Biological evolution must be presented in the same way that it is understood within the scientific community: as a well-accepted principle that provides the foundation to understanding the natural world. Evolution should not be misrepresented as 'controversial', or in need of 'critical analysis' or special attention for any supposed 'strength or weakness' any more than other scientific ideas are. Biology educators at all levels must work to encourage the development of and support for standards, curricula, textbooks, and other instructional frameworks that prominently incude evolution and its mechanisms and that refrain from confusing non-scientific with scientific explanations in science instruction."

This statement is taken from the National Association of Biology Teachers. The complete document, endorsed by the Biology Articulation Committee at its May 2015 meeting, can be found on the NABT website at this link.


Adopted by the NABT Board of Directors, 2011. Revised 1997, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2011 (Original Statement 1995).

Articulation committees have representation from each BC Transfer System member institution with programs or courses in the subject area. Committees meet annually to discuss issues related to course transfer and curriculum in their subject.

This articulation committee webpage has been designed so that committees can request to have their own content, documents, links or other information presented. Committees also have the option to create a Moodle site for this purpose (see Using Moodle).
