When is this in my time zone?

The next Webinar in the series sponsored by The Biophysicist and the BPS Education Committee, Using Curricular Material Repositories to Enhance the Learning Experience, will take place on September 22 from 12:00 to 1:30 PM USA Eastern Time. Curricular material repositories offer extensive and well-curated collections of resources readily available to educators. The panel discussion will provide a glimpse of the overall purpose of the repositories and how to contribute, adapt, and adopt resources. An open discussion by the audience will follow the panel discussion (approximately 30 minutes). The panelists represent a variety of web portals from disciplinary communities that overlap with biophysics, and ultimately all aim to enhance the students' learning experience. The Biophysicist Associate Editor Patricia Soto will lead the discussion.

Attendees with any level of experience or interest in teaching are welcome.

Registration is free.

Patricia Soto – Creighton University; Associate Editor, The Biophysicist

This series of webinars is sponsored by the Editors of The Biophysicist and the Biophysical Society’s Education Committee. It seeks to help attendees to become more effective in their teaching of biophysics, while valuing diversity and equity among students with different backgrounds. Topics include research-based approaches to teaching biophysics, and the webinars will introduce participants to the field of educational research, with particular application to biophysics.
