39th Annual ABLE Workshop/Conference at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI
The 39th annual ABLE conference will be held June 13-16, 2017 at the University of Wisconsin (http://www.wisc.edu/) in Madison, the state capitol, which is situated on an isthmus between two beautiful lakes, Mendota and Monona. ABLE participants will spend their conference time in the labs and classrooms of the Zoology and Botany departments. The focus of ABLE is to improve the undergraduate biology laboratory experience by promoting the development and dissemination of interesting, innovative, and reliable laboratory exercises.
Each conference brings together a group of selected presenters with about 200 participants from university and college biology departments throughout Canada and the U.S. In three very full days, the participants are actively involved in four 3-hour “hands on” workshops and several shorter “mini” workshops. The workshop presenters provide all of the essential information and experiences that the potential user of the laboratory would require in order to “take it home” and use the exercise in their own teaching program. The workshops are published in Tested Studies for Laboratory Teaching, the conference’s peer-reviewed proceedings published by ABLE available online.
