Explore Population Dynamics and Invasive Species with BioInteractive
To accommodate educators' schedules, this workshop will be offered twice. Workshop content will be the same at both sessions.
- Session 1: Wednesday, December 1, 6:00–7:00 PM EASTERN
- Session 2: Wednesday, December 8, 6:00–7:00 PM EASTERN
Note that the workshop time is in US Eastern time zone. Please verify the corresponding time in your local area.
Help students learn about population dynamics by studying the recent growth of the invasive lionfish population in the western Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea, using BioInteractive’s Lionfish Invasion Click & Learn. We will explore how students can learn more about the impacts of invasive species on ecosystems and use case studies drawn from primary sources to learn about density-dependent factors that regulate populations such as competition, predation, disease and parasites and social behaviors. By the end of the workshop, participants will be prepared to help students engage in mathematical modeling and data analysis as they use this resource.
This workshop is intended for educators who teach all levels of high school biology and environmental science, including introductory and advanced (AP, IB, etc.) courses.
- The workshop will be hosted via Zoom meeting.
- 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.
