Do you have experience in implementing and effectively delivering inclusive online laboratories at the College/University level? The Society for Developmental Biology is hosting a workshop at their 80th Annual Meeting this July and is looking for individuals who can share their experiences in this area.
We are interested in selecting 3-4 individuals who can present a short 7-minute talk broadly describing their experiences in online teaching labs. This could include a brief description of the online laboratory, comments on the personal lessons they learned (both good and bad) through the implementation process, and/or ideas of what they would do differently next time when utilizing an online laboratory. Please note, the individuals do not have to be specifically instructing a developmental biology online lab. Overall, we are interested in creating a conversation about strategies to successfully offer any online laboratory in a remote learning environment.
If you have implemented an online laboratory and would like to be considered for a short talk in the workshop, please fill out the following Google form to indicate your interest. https://forms.gle/jptK5YGErMW3VMGu5. The deadline for submitting your interest in presenting in this workshop is May 15, 2021.
Ultimately, we hope that this discussion will lead to a community of resources available to the SDB members and others regarding best practices for implementing online laboratories. A long-term goal of this workshop is to develop shareable resources (i.e.- laboratories) that community members could utilize and implement if they so choose.
Thank you in advance for your time and participation in this important area. For additional questions regarding this e-mail and the workshop, please contact either of the workshop co-chairs, Ed Freeman (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Anna Allen (email@example.com).
