Are questions about how to teach/explain biology (so called soft questions) on topic here. I've noticed that some sites allow it. As an example I've noticed that Math SE allow question like, how to explain mathematical ideas to someone who asks or how to write mathematics. Not only do I find answers to these questions informative they often are well written and fun to read.
This got me thinking about how to best explain biology, and learn biology. While I have my methods for teaching and explaining biology, and I know how others in my department teach it, but I have always wondered about the other methods I might not be aware of.
Obviously my question would have to show some sort of research and be specific enough to allow actual answers.
Problems with allowing these kinds of questions is that they would be almost entirely opinion based and filled with anecdotes. How would one go about avoiding this pitfall? Is it worth the risk? Or should I find some other forum/ SE site to ask and read about teaching biology to students?
