About the meeting

This event concluded on October 1st, 2016


Theme: Meaningful Pedagogical practices in Biology classrooms

What does it mean for a teaching technique to be "meaningful": did it engage the students? Did they learn as a result? 

Bulk of our time during the Focus group would be devoted to these discussions. We will start by discussing in more details questions you answered (on pedagogical techniques and experiences) during the online registration. Our aim is for all participating faculty to come away with concrete strategies they can implement in their classes.

REGISTRATION is on first-come-first-serve basis. Max. capacity: 30 teachers

Please note that participants must make their own travel arrangements.
