Event description

Description

Genetic Technologies for Alabama Classrooms: Essential Biology is an intensive professional development experience that includes a one-week academy at HudsonAlpha, a two-day workshop during the school year and sustained interaction and support for classroom implementation. A significant revision from the previous two-week GTAC workshop, this one-week program focuses on the genetics content encountered in a General Biology course. Specific attention will be directed at preparing teachers to implement the 2015 Alabama Course of Study: Science, Biology Standards.

GTAC: Essential Biology will be held June 25-30, 2017, at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology.

Eligible educators will spend five full-days at HudsonAlpha, digging deeply into modern genetic content through hands-on laboratory practice and content-deepening talks by leading scientists.

Additional details:

  • Open to high school life science teachers, with special emphasis on teachers of one or more sections of Biology
  • Open only to educators in public schools in Alabama
  • Dorm-style housing at UAH and meals provided. Housing will be suite-style, with individual rooms, but shared bathrooms, kitchen and living space.
  • Stipend for teachers who meet the post-academy implementation targets
  • 40 hours of STIPD credit
  • Tub of kits, materials and classroom resources, valued at over $1,000

Genetic Technologies for Alabama Classrooms (GTAC) is made possible through support from the State of Alabama.
