Call for presentations on the use of C. elegans in classroom teaching 
at the 14th
International C. elegans Meeting

The C. elegans Teaching Workshop Committee is organizing a series of 
teaching workshops
at the upcoming C. elegans meeting.  One of the workshops will focus 
on the use of C.
elegans in the classroom.  We are seeking presentations that 
demonstrate classroom use of
C. elegans to illustrate important biological principles.  There is 
great interest in use
of C. elegans visual resources (e.g. movies, animations, photographs) 
and databases in
courses at various levels.  For example, are C. elegans movies and 
images on topics like
cell division, progression of meiosis, tissue/organ specific gene 
expression, subcellular
localization of proteins and multi-protein complexes being used in 
the classroom?  With
the wealth of GFP-expressing C. elegans strains, are there some that 
are particularly
well-suited for classroom demonstration?

Please contact Jim Lissemore (jlissemore at jcu.edu) as soon as possible 
if you are
interested in participating in this workshop with a brief description of your
presentation.  We are still working on the details of time, date, and 
place for the
workshop.  Presenters will be selected by the C. elegans Teaching 
Workshop Committee.

Thanks very much!
