The C. elegans Teaching Workshop Committee (Phil Meneely, Haverford
Vallier, Hofstra University; Katie Walstrom, New College of South
Goutte, Amherst College; Leilani Miller, Santa Clara University; Liz
Polytechnic Institute; John Scott, University of Hawaii at Hilo;
Becky Kohn, Ursinus
College; Jim Lissemore, John Carroll University) is organizing three
and a teaching poster session for the 2003 International C. elegans
Meeting. An update
listing the panelists, presenters, times, rooms, and other
information will be sent out
shortly before the meeting. Please direct any questions to Jim Lissemore
(jlissemore at jcu.edu).
Teaching Workshop I (Mon. June 30, time and room TBA)
"What is life like at a predominantly undergraduate (i.e. teaching)
institution and how
can I get a job at one?"
This workshop should be of interest to graduate students and postdocs
who are considering
a career at a predominantly undergraduate institution (PUI). The
faculty members at PUIs are
substantially different from those typically encountered at a
research university and the
job search process is also quite different. This panel will discuss
issues such as
teaching loads, research expectations and opportunities, how to find
PUI job openings,
and hiring criteria at PUIs.
Teaching Workshop II (Tues. July 1, time and room TBA)
"Using C. elegans in the classroom"
This workshop should be of interest to educators at all levels who
wish to use C. elegans
to illustrate important biological principles. The presenters at
this workshop will
demonstrate how C. elegans visual resources (e.g. movies, animations,
databases, GFP-expressing strains, and other resources can be used in
courses at various
Teaching Workshop III (Wed. July 2, time and room TBA)
"Maintaining a research program at a predominantly undergraduate institution"
This workshop should be of interest to faculty members at PUIs and
those considering a
career at a PUI. Faculty at most PUIs are encouraged/expected to
experiences for undergraduates and many PUIs require publications for
promotion. The panelists will discuss issues such as conducting research with
undergraduates, mistakes to avoid, external and internal funding
sources, and grant
Teaching Poster Session (Day and time TBA)
Fifteen teaching posters that describe the use of C. elegans in
teaching will be grouped
together on the stage of the Ackerman Ball Room from Mon. June 30
through Wed. July 1.
Authors will be asked to be at the teaching posters at a time to be
