Going to SABER? See this invitation to a Community College BER Gathering at SABER.
Dear SABER Colleagues,
- Are you a community college (CC) instructor attending this year's national meeting?
- Are you in a non-CC position, but interested in biology education at CCs?
- Are you a graduate student or postdoc considering a career in CC education?
If so, we invite you to meet with the CC BER Interest Group at SABER 2018! We will be convening from 4:30-5:30 on Friday, July 27, at Bruininks Room 312.
Though just over half of all biology students attend CCs as part of their undergraduate experience, only a tiny fraction (~3%) of BER publications focus on CC contexts. Based on that finding and a related report recently published in LSE (https://www.lifescied.org/doi/full/10.1187/cbe.16-10-0289), we are collaborating in a nationwide network of individuals interested in promoting CC BER. On July 27, we will gather to build community and discuss opportunities available through the NSF-funded CC Bio INSITES network (https://qubeshub.org/community/groups/ccbioinsites).
Please join us during the gathering on the 27th and/or visit the web address above and request to join our group electronically!
Looking forward to seeing many of you later this week!
If you are interested in more information about this project but you are not attending the SABER meeting please feel free to drop us an email and we will share future project updates and opportunities with you.
