Building with Biology Online Workshops

Online professional development for host site staff, volunteers, and scientists who hosted 2016 Building with Biology events.

DESCRIPTION

To help support Summer 2016 Building with Biology event host sites, the project provided professional development opportunities for host site staff, volunteers, and scientists. Online workshops provided an overview on public forums, the contents in the Building with Biology physical kit, and event and forum evaluations. Project orientations, led by project partner the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), help scientists learn the context for the Building with Biology project, prepare scientists to approach the hands-on activities as conversations and opportunities to learn from visitors, and the importance of bringing this topic to the public discussion. Orientation also gives scientists a chance to network and ‘meet’ other project volunteers!
