Sign up for our first ever online Educator Retreat
Genome BC Geneskool is offering our first ever Educator Retreat this summer from July 27- July 30 for a few hours per day of online content.
We have an exciting lineup of guest speakers, workshops, engaging discussions and more! This retreat will take place online and include self-guided learning, audiovisual presentations and discussion-based workshops.
This retreat is:
- For grade 9 to 12 Educators from BC
- To learn more about genomics and how it intersects with society
- To gain lesson plans for their class that can be used both online and in person
In this retreat we will be covering topics such as (but not limited to!):
- Inheritance and Identity
- Molecular Biology and Gene Editing
- Beyond Biology: Intersection of Genes and Society
With the help of Geneskool facilitators and BC researchers, educators will:
- Reflect on personal perceptions of genetics and genomics
- Engage in meaningful discussion and dialogue over how best to advance genomic literacy with grade 9-12 students
- Explore how to use Geneskool content as a scaffold to approach Big Ideas in the curriculum and to help students find relevance between their own lives and genomic sciences
- Gain material and practical resources for use in unit and lesson plans for online and in person instruction
A more detailed schedule will come in the next few weeks. In the meantime, sign up for the event and to receive automatic email updates.
