TALX Teaching and Learning Workshop, Jan. 6

The TALX (Teaching and Learning: X) workshop series provides an annual forum for current and future faculty to engage in hands-on activities and share innovation. As part of a “Quantitative Biology” educational theme for the WPB meeting, this year’s TALX is an extension of the symposium “Leading Students and Faculty to Quantitative Biology Through Active Learning,” and is also aligned with the Moore Lecture the following day by Dr. John Jungck.  The TALX will include demonstration tables highlighting labs and in-class activities with handouts and/or links to lesson and lab materials. There will also be a panel discussion on the benefits and challenges of implementing active learning approaches when teaching quantitative biology.  The TALX is planned for the evening following the symposium on January 6.  More information is available at http://teachmathbio.web.unc.edu/
