2016 Professional Development Conference
November 3-6, 2016
Join other leaders in biology and life science education for four days of renowned speakers, hands-on workshops, informative sessions and special events that you can't get anywhere else!
NABT is now accepting session proposals for the 2016 NABT Professional Development Conference being held November 3rd – 6th at the Denver Sheraton-Downtown in Denver, Colorado.
Please note that the NABT Conference will shift to a Thursday through Sunday schedule for the 2016, 2017, and 2018 conferences to be held in Denver, St. Louis, and San Diego respectively.
Sessions that highlight assessment and science practices are once again encouraged, as are sessions that relate to initiatives like the NGSS, AP Biology course, and implementing Vision & Change. Space in the conference program is limited. In addition to the traditional hands-on workshop or paper presentations, please indicate if your content is appropriate for alternative formats such as a poster, 10-minute mini-session, or a 5-min speed session that highlights a single resource.
The NABT Professional Development Committee will review all proposals. We will accommodate as many sessions as possible but due to the high volume of submissions, late and incomplete session proposals will not be considered. Acceptance confirmations will be sent via email to primary presenters by May 1, 2016.
Proposals for education sessions are being accepted at http://www.nabt.org/submissions/nabt2016 until 11:59pm EDT on Tuesday, March 15th. Other calls for conference submissions like poster sessions and research symposia will be announced in the coming months.
