Dear Bio Sci Community,
I’m delighted to invite you to attend the next seminar in the “Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity Speaker Series for Teaching Professional Development”, a series developed by Dr. Andrea Nicholas and Dr. Audrey Chen Lew from the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior, with support from the Bio Sci Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. The seminar series is open to all faculty, staff, and students.
This series will feature talks by expert speakers, followed by a 45-minute casual discussion session between the speaker and students. The next seminar is scheduled for February 16, 2022 will feature David Asai, Senior Director for Science Education at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
Graduate students and undergraduate Learning Assistants participating in the talk series will be asked to fill out a brief reflective survey for each talk. At the end of the series, students who attend at least 6 out of the 8 talks and complete the related assessment will receive a certificate of completion and letter, detailing their involvement and dedication to promoting excellence and inclusivity in STEM Education.
Lecture and discussion will be followed by food and refreshments. Questions about the series should be directed to Dr. Andrea Nicolas and Dr. Audrey Chen Lew.
