he construction of Active Learning Classrooms; and establishing Student Learning Outcomes, standards that measure biology education. She serves as founding Editor-in-Chief of CourseSource, focusing national effort to collect learner-centered, outcomes-based teaching resources in undergraduate biology.

She has held roles on the Advisory Committee for the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences and National Science Foundation Vision and Change Initiative (2013), Senior Editor for CBELife Sciences Education, the steering committee for the National AcademiesHHMI Summer Institutes on Undergraduate Education in Biology, as well as countless other course design teams and committees. She is an active member of GSA, having previously served as Education Committee Chair and contributing editor for the popular "Ask the Abbot" advice column in the GSA Newsletter.

Dr. Wright is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a National Academies of Science Education Mentor in the Life Sciences. She received the University of Washington's Distinguished Teaching Award in 2000.

The Elizabeth W. Jones Award for Excellence in Education recognizes significant and sustained impact on genetics education. Recipients of award have promoted greater exposure to and deeper understanding of genetics through distinguished teaching or mentoring, development of innovative pedagogical approaches or tools, design of new courses or curricula, national leadership, and/or public engagement and outreach.

The award was named posthumously for Elizabeth W. Jones (1939), the recipient of the first GSA Excellence in Education Award in 2007. She was a renowned geneticist and educator who served as the 1987 GSA president and as Editor-in-Chief of GSA's journal GENETICS for almost 12 years (1996).
