Exploring Habitat Fragmentation with HHMI BioInteractive
This workshop will be offered on Thursday, February 22, 7:00–8:30PM EASTERN. Note that the workshop time is in US Eastern time zone. Please verify the corresponding time in your local area.
Human activities such as building roads can fragment previously connected natural habitats, leading to smaller, more isolated populations. During this workshop, we’ll explore ways that humans can reconnect habitats to mitigate fragmentation using HHMI BioInteractive resources. We’ll also explore the species-area relationship through a short film and activities that utilize real world data to help students better understand the environmental problems and potential solutions associated with habitat fragmentation. Participants will leave the workshop with an understanding of how to teach concepts related to habitat fragmentation as well as activities for assessing strategies aimed at mitigating habitat fragmentation.
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.
- 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 transcription 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.
