Developmental Biology Teaching Workshop • June 27-July 1, 2017

The Developmental Biology Teaching Workshop (DBTW)  introduces both senior faculty and our next generation of developmental biologists to a variety of easily implemented laboratory tools and a host of research organisms. Low budget, high impact microscopy and surgical techniques as well as fluorescence photo-microscopy techniques will be covered. Materials include tips on organism husbandry and developmental biology exercises for ciliates, flowering plants and ferns, flatworms, hydra, Drosophila, Caenorhabditis, urchins, and chicken embroyos. Species vary from year to year depending on guest instructors.

This workshop is designed for postdocs and graduate students about to begin teaching developmental biology, but has also proven useful for experienced developmental biology teachers wishing to diversify their laboratory courses. There is considerable sharing of techniques and ideas among the participants as well as informal socializing and a course-ending New England lobster lunch.
