Workshops for undergraduate educators in California and Wisconsin

The ASBMB has two workshops for undergraduate educators coming up this spring as it continues its Catalyst Conversations series. The first workshop will be on Feb. 24 in California, and the second will be on March 16 in Wisconsin.

In the January issue of ASBMB Today, Ann Aguanno of Marymount Manhattan College, wrote about how the workshop series came to be and how the 2018 event for educators was received. We’ll excerpt a few key details below but recommend reading her full piece.
