The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) is piloting regional meetings to promote professional development and networking among life science educators who don’t have the time or funds to travel to national meetings.
I’m excited to announce that the first of these meetings is Teaching Tomorrow’s Scientists: An ASCB Regional Meeting, which is a day-long meeting is designed for a teaching-intensive audience of life scientists and will be held on May 31, 2019, at the University of Georgia in Athens.
The meeting will include biological research and education research plenaries (the latter by Julie Stanton and graduate student collaborator, Birook Mekonnen), a poster session, a networking lunch, afternoon workshops, and an end-of-day networking mixer. Abstracts are invited for 75-minute workshop sessions appropriate for undergraduate biology educators (deadline is March 4). Abstracts are also invited for posters presenting educational innovations, education research, and biological research (deadline is April 20). There is no submission fee for either type of abstract. The deadline for meeting registration is May 24. The cost is $40 for ASCB members and $50 for nonmembers, which includes coffee breaks, lunch, and an end-of-day mixer.
