Taking place at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT) will feature sessions and a field trip for educators to discover tools and teaching methods that will make their lessons more attractive to students. Exhibitors at the conference include the American Museum of Natural History, American Physiological Society, American Society of Plant Biologists, Animalearn, Clemson University, Educurious Project-Based Learning, Maderas Rainforest Conservancy, the National Center for Science Education (NCSE), OpenSTAX/Rice University, and W.W. Norton. A field trip to the San Diego Zoo’s Institute for Conservation Research is planned for November 8. Teachers who participate in the field trip will learn about the zoo’s research teams, classroom resources, conservation-focused curriculum, and developmental resources teachers can utilize to remain current regarding advancements in the world of biology and biology education.
While attending some of these conferences might require taking some time away from the classroom, learning more about innovative teaching methods at STEM teacher conferences will help you become a stronger, more effective educator. Simply prepare for absences well in advance and work with administrators for a seamless few days away at STEM teacher conferences. You’ll be glad you did!
