  • UBEA looks forward to seeing you at our upcoming annual meeting. The conference occurs over a day and a half: on May 7th we will meet late afternoon for a social and poster session. We will reconvene for a full day of presentations on May 8th.

    We are an inclusive organization: you need not be a biologist, professor, or from Alberta to join in the conversation. Anyone interested in promoting effective and engaging biology education is welcome (including students and post-doctoral fellows)!

    You are invited to submit an abstract for one of the presentation formats below:

    1. Poster presentation - this is a great format to share your ideas “under development” with the group, and allows for great interaction, feedback, and conversation. The poster session will be held on May 7 during the social.
    2. Oral presentation - 20 minutes (including questions)
    3. Workshop - 45 minutes (including questions) - engage participants in a more in-depth and active exploration of the topic or practice you are presenting on.
    4. Demonstration - 5 slides (max), 5 minutes presentation on a teaching strategy that works for you, a demonstration, etc. There will be 10 minutes of questions after your demonstration.

    Deadline for abstract submission is January 31, 2020.

    Abstracts will be peer-reviewed and applicants will be notified of the decision on their submission in late February 2020.

    Registration will open early in 2020.

    Please email Jody Rintoul (UBEA president; rintoul@ualberta.ca) if you have any questions about the conference.
