Major Workshop Presentations

Vendors may participate in the presentation of a Major Workshop only if they are partnered with a faculty or staff from an academic institution who is teaching the exercise to students and who is the primary author and presenter of the Major Workshop. Major workshop proposals are submitted to the Major Workshop Committee for review. These workshops should be focused on effective approaches to helping student learn in biology teaching laboratories, rather than on selling a particular product. However, a novel product may convincingly help students learn the laboratory material and play an important role in a successful Major Workshop exercise.
