The Association for Biology Laboratory Education (ABLE) Conference
The Association for Biology Laboratory Education (ABLE) has a yearly (June) workshop-based conference at which faculty learn about new laboratory studies in all area of biology (including animal behavior, neuroscience, bio-mathematics, statistics, biochemistry and biophysics) by participating in hands-on 3-hour major workshops in which they actually conduct the laboratory study. During the conference, participants attend four major workshops, four or five mini-workshops and a poster session. There is a strong emphasis at this conference on pedagogy that works and changing teaching methods to improve student outcomes. The 2017 conference will be held at the University of Wisconsin, Madison June 13-17. The conference is held at a different college or university campus each year in the US or Canada. Registration waivers are available for new faculty. Information about ABLE, ABLE workshops and ABLE resources may be found at their website.

2017 SACNAS is a conference like no other. Equal parts science, culture, and community, 2017 SACNAS is the largest diversity in STEM conference in the country. We invite you to join us this October for three days of cutting-edge science, training, mentoring, and cultural activities for scientists at all levels and disciplines. 2017 SACNAS is brought to you by Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS). For over 40 years SACNAS has been the leading multicultural and multidisciplinary STEM diversity organization in the country. Since its inception, our SACNAS family has grown from the number of people who can fit in to an elevator to over 25,000 SACNISTAs (members, partners, and friends).
