This product will give you access to the recordings from the Science Educators Workshop (SEW) as well as the pdf slides associated with the presentations.

Launched in 2015, this popular event, held one day prior to the AMP Annual Meeting, is a complimentary workshop for local area high school and college level science faculty. Learn about basic genetics and molecular biology, take a peek into a molecular pathology lab, hear from three molecular diagnosticians about their exciting career paths, and explore innovative educational curricula and best practices from the world-renowned genetics educator, Dr. Louisa Stark.

This online course includes all the recorded presentations from the live course held on June November 15, 2017.

Target audience: High School/College Scienc Educators and their high-level science students.
