WORKSHOP

TEACHING LESSONS LEARNED FROM A DISTANCE #ABSTEACH (click to view)

Organized by: Laura K.Sirot, Andrea Bierema, Heather Zimbler-DeLorenzo, Deborah Boege Tobin and Jennifer Mather

2020-2021 was a unique year in many ways.In the context of teaching and learning in Animal Behavior, our community has learned and tried many new pedagogical techniques as well as adapting existing techniques to novel circumstances.Some practices may have worked fantastically, and others did not.Both outcomes provide insights for improving Animal Behavior educational approaches.We discussed in our Mid-year (January) Workshop, "Lessons from Online Teaching and Learning Animal Behavior, " what faculty have incorporated or modified in an effort to provide students the best opportunity to learn the material (without having the same in-person experiences).Now, we would like to invite you to meet as a community to share the lessons we have learned from this past year that we will take with us as we move forward with our Animal Behavior-related teaching.What have you learned or practiced this past year that you would like to continue? The ABS Education Committee invites you to contribute to our workshop "Teaching Lessons Learned from a Distance #ABSteach" during the ABS Annual Meeting this summer.
