Teaching Developmental Biology

The Developmental Biology Teaching Workshop introduces both senior faculty and the next generation of developmental biologists to a variety of easily implemented laboratory tools and a host of research organisms. The workshop focuses on high-impact, low-budget embryological and imaging techniques, on more sophisticated microscopy, and on genetic and pharmacological manipulations of development. Model systems include urchins, zebrafish, nematodes, flies, chick, Hydra, and tardigrades. This workshop is designed for postdocs and graduate students about to begin teaching developmental biology, and 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 dinner.

Instructors: Jennifer Fish, University of Massachusetts, Lowell & Ian Woods, Ithaca College
