The Innovations Conference, now in its 21st year, is the foremost convening for professionals dedicated to improving and enhancing teaching and learning, leadership and management, and the community college experience.
This one day professional development conference for high school teachers and counselors from Montgomery and Bucks counties will provide an opportunity to learn about careers in STEM fields focusing on bioscience and engineering. Local industry professionals will deliver keynote presentations and lead small group discussions with participants providing up-to-date snapshots of the fields that can be shared with students.
The BIFP is a three week observational and hands-on fellowship program where selected instructors reside in Winston–Salem, North Carolina, during June, for an immersion in NC Bioscience; educational institutions, training facilities, laboratories, classrooms, and industrial and education sites.
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to experiments and techniques used in the biopharmaceutical industry to prevent microbial contamination of products, and biochemical assays that test for identity, purity and potency of the drug substance and product. Microbiological QC activities will include endotoxin testing, molecular and biochemical approaches to microbe detection and identification, and environmental monitoring.
Supported by the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technological Education (NSF ATE) program, HI-TEC is a national conference on advanced technological education where secondary and postsecondary educators, counselors, industry professionals, trade organizations, and technicians can update their knowledge and skills.
More than 350 microbiology and biology educators will gather at the ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) August 1–4, 2019 in Tysons, VA, for an engaging four-day conference. Educators come from a wide range of institutions – from community colleges to international universities – to fully immerse themselves in biological sciences.
