Annual Meeting 2020 - University of Lethbridge, May 7-8, 2020
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:
- 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.
- Oral presentation - 20 minutes (including questions)
- Workshop - 45 minutes (including questions) - engage participants in a more in-depth and active exploration of the topic or practice you are presenting on.
- 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; firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about the conference.
