Modeling Genetics and Gene Regulation With BioInteractive’s Stickleback Resources
To accommodate educators' schedules, this workshop will be offered twice. Workshop content will be the same at both sessions.
- Session 1: Thursday, June 2, 7:00–9:00 PM EASTERN
- Session 2: Friday, June 17, 1:00–3:00 PM EASTERN
Note that the workshop time is in US Eastern time zone. Please verify the corresponding time in your local area.
The presence and absence of pelvic spines in stickleback fish serves as a compelling storyline of genetics and gene regulation. In this workshop, participants will investigate free, classroom-ready BioInteractive resources including a short film, a Phenomenal Image, and classroom activities related to this phenomenon. Using best practices, we will explore strategies to engage students in interpreting patterns of inheritance through genetic cross analysis and in developing and using models of gene regulation. We will also engage as educators in exploring literacy strategies, science practice implementation strategies, and reflection practices.
This workshop is intended for educators who teach any level of high school biology, including introductory and advanced (AP, IB, etc.) courses, and undergraduate educators who teach at 2- or 4-year institutions. 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 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.
