BC Bio 2020 – May 13, 2-4pm

You are invited to BC Bio 2020: Building our Teaching Community in a Time of Turbulence.

We have decided: we’re not letting COVID keep our fantastic BC teaching community apart.
So far, this year has seen some incredible challenges, and in response, some incredible resilience and connection. Further, we have an incredible keynote speaker lined up, excited to speak about the pedagogy and practices that span her impressive career: the indomitable Joan Sharp.

So, let’s celebrate both our community and Joan’s research, and share highlights and lowlights of recent/future teaching, by coming together for a virtual BC Bio meeting.

Unlike our in-person meetings, we’re keeping this short and sweet: two hours total including an invited speaker, and an interactive workshop.  In keeping with BC Bio tradition, we’ll have a sharing session with practical, useful tips that you can implement directly in your remote teaching.

So, please save the date: Wednesday May 13, 2-4pm (Pacific time) to help us plan in a responsive way.

Virtual location (Zoom) and further details to be announced.  We’re an inclusive community –  housemates, coworkers, pets, kids, houseplants, and other non-Biology teaching folks are of course welcome to join your screen!  Click to add this date to your calendar.


Keep safe & sane, and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Your BC Bio organizers,

Megan Barker (Simon Fraser; megan.barker@sfu.ca)
Marcia Graves (UBC Vancouver; marcia.graves@ubc.ca)
Robin Young (UBC Okanagan; robin.young@ubc.ca)   &  Matt Nelson (UBC Okanagan)
