Microbiomes to Ecosystems: Evolution and Biodiversity across Scale, Space, and Time
Our knowledge about the Earth’s biodiversity across space, time, and scale is expanding rapidly. New tools, like remote sensing, are creating new data sources, while other tools, like digitization, are freeing traditional datasets from the cabinets and drawers of labs and collections and making them accessible online. How do we teach students about biodiversity at different scales and contexts with these new data, tools, and resources? How do we best enable and develop the next generation of 21st century scientists and create data-driven educational programs aligned to national initiatives such as Next Generations Science Standards and Vision and Change for Undergraduate Biology Education?
The Life Discovery – Doing Science Biology Education Conference will build on the 2017 data theme and challenge educators to create opportunities for their learners to explore our theme across Scale, Space and Time.
