The COVID-19 Pandemic: Using Animations to Explore Molecular Biology and Biotechnology
This workshop will be offered Monday, June 26, 6:00–7:30 PM EASTERN. Note that the workshop time is in US Eastern time zone. Please verify the corresponding time in your local area.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our lives in unfathomable ways. Yet with every problem, there is opportunity for innovation and to advance our understanding of the natural world. Participants will explore free, classroom-ready BioInteractive resources designed to help students learn the science behind the headlines and see the real-world connections between understanding viral replication cycles and how biologists discover ways to detect and track viruses, treat infections, and prevent future epidemics. A version of this workshop was previously offered by BioInteractive in 2022.
Michele Koehler and Valerie May
This workshop is for educators who teach any level of high school biology, including introductory and advanced courses (AP, IB, etc.). Facilitators will model strategies for synchronous online and in person instruction.
- The workshop will be hosted via Zoom meeting.
- There will be 30 minutes of optional asynchronous work before the session.
- Our workshops actively engage participants and often feature small group work in breakout rooms to build community, foster discussion, and model classroom practice.
- Workshop attendees will receive a certificate of participation and access to the free BioInteractive resources modeled in the workshop.
Live transcript will be available in the main Zoom meeting room. If you require live transcription in the breakout rooms, or any other accommodations in order to fully participate in the workshop, please indicate this on the registration form.
