BIO-LINK Austin Meeting 2011
August 15th -August 19th
At this meeting , participants will learn new skills and techniques, examine and test exemplary curriculum models and course material, engage in dialogue about ethical, legal, and social issues in biotechnology and learn how to disseminate this information within their own regions. Fellows are expected to implement new strategies into their own programs, to lead regional staff development activities, and provide prompt response to follow-up surveys.
Bio-Link Conferences allow members and partners to share successes in teaching the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for student success in the rapidly changing biotechnology workplace. A highly qualified workforce is one of the major factors required for high tech industries like biotechnology to thrive. Bio-Link and its members are dedicated to these aims.
This year’s Bio-Link meeting will split between two days of high school focused labs and three days of College level labs, please look at the tentative agenda to see the days focus on what level of laboratory exercises.
Please take advantage of a unique opportunity to connect with educators from across our region by choosing to sponsor one of the
