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.
