HS & community college science teachers are invited to apply for a travel award to attend NABT

Application deadline: Friday October 4, 2013, at 8 PM EST

Motivated, energetic, enthusiastic science instructors at the high school and community college levels are invited to apply for travel awards to attend the 2013 Professional Development Conference of the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT), to be held November 20-23, 2013, in Atlanta, GA.

The goal of the program is to identify talented instructors who are excited about evolution, provide them with the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and pedagogical skills at the NABT conference, and then have them share this with their students (through classroom activities) and colleagues (through professional development activities).

All meeting expenses (transportation, lodging, food and meeting registration) will be covered.

Applicants should be high school or community college instructors with a passion for learning about and teaching evolution. They should have a proven track record of successfully covering evolution-related topics in their courses in innovative ways. In addition, they should be able to demonstrate a long-standing commitment to instructor professional development -- both their own, and that of their colleagues.

The awards are sponsored by the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) and the BEACON Center for the Study of
Evolution in Action. For more information about the program please contact Dr. Jory Weintraub at jory@nescent.org.

Award winners will be announced by Friday October 11.
