Are you interested in flipping your classroom using podcasts? Apply now to join us for the Spring 2023 BioTA & BioQUEST Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN).

Participants in this FMN will pick one of the following:
1) Create new materials associated with a BioTA podcast and implement it in their classroom
2) Use existing materials in their classroom
3) Work on new podcasts and materials

While doing this, they will participate in biweekly virtual sessions to collaborate with and support others in the network and receive mentoring.

Applications are due January 15, 2023.

Space is limited, and the network is launching soon, so apply now!


Description: The BioTA Podcast is continuing the great work they did during the BIOME 2022 and are working to create and implement materials in new classrooms.


Dates & Location:

The virtual kick-off will be held in early February, 2023 (date and time TBD). The FMN will continue online to support the customization and implementation of activities in your course during the Spring 2023 semester.

Additional time outside of these discussions may be required for independent work on adapting and reviewing modules.
