HHMI BioInteractive and QUBES are pleased to offer a unique networking and professional development opportunity from June 2017-January 2018 for faculty interested in improving student quantitative skills in biology. Faculty participants focus on providing students with a more comprehensive quantitative skillset by implementing selected HHMI BioInteractive materials in their introductory biology courses and will draft a supplementary activity. For more information on the selected modules, visit https://qubeshub.org/groups/hhmibiointeractive2017/materials.
Additional information about this Faculty Mentoring Network is available at https://qubeshub.org/groups/hhmibiointeractive2017. All faculty are welcome. We encourage faculty from minority-serving institutions and primarily undergraduate institutions or community colleges to apply.
For more information, attend our informational webinar on April 12, 2017 at 4:00pm EST. Instructions for registering for the webinar can be found on our QUBES Hub website: https://qubeshub.org/groups/hhmibiointeractive2017/webinar.
April 01–December 31
Are you interested in incorporating more real data into your undergraduate courses? Natural History Collections have been digitizing their holdings and making them available online, creating a vast resource for biodiversity data that educators can access!
Apply now to join the 2017 “Resources for Collections-Based Undergraduate Education” Faculty Mentoring Network. Participants will be introduced to new materials and modules that address fundamental biological principles using real biodiversity collections data. Accepted applicants will participate in virtual sessions, a two-day workshop (held on May 24-25, 2017, in Gainesville, Florida), and continue to collaborate and receive mentoring online as they customize and implement activities in their own classrooms.
This opportunity is part of a collaboration among iDigBio (Integrated Digitized Biocollections), QUBES (Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis), Kurator, AIM-UP! (Advancing Integration of Museum into Undergraduate Programs), and
BLUE (Biodiversity Literacy in Undergraduate Education).
