Included here are the resources for an interactive webinar focused on designing engaging and accessible online events that build lasting community. The webinar explores the 2020 Biology and Math Educators (BIOME) Institute organized by BioQUEST and QUBES as a case study. Presenters share lessons learned and practices that can be applied to online professional development and educational events. Topics include: participant engagement, asynchronous and synchronous community building, access, universal design, and online professional development.

This webinar is part of the series, "Adapting to COVID-19: Resources for Natural History Collections in a New Virtual World." 


This version includes the Padlet used during the webinar and a screenshot of the word cloud generated by Menti during the webinar. Also new to this version is a link to the recording of the webinar.
