Catalyst Conversations for Undergraduate Educators

The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Montclair State University invite you to participate in the Catalyst Conversations for Undergraduate Educators workshop. This participant driven workshop is a great opportunity for educators to exchange ideas about teaching practices in biochemistry and molecular biology. Participants will have an opportunity to give short “chalk talks,” share instructional materials and have discussions about implementing new ideas into their own teaching. Sessions will be based on the submitted project summaries. We strongly encourage you to submit a project summary, but it is not required for participation. 

This workshop is free and open to all undergraduate biochemistry and molecular biology educators, including faculty, postdocs and graduate students. Lunch and continental breakfast will be provided.
