Professional Development Institute
ABE Professional Development Institute
This summer, Bellarmine University will host the ABE-KY professional development institute (PDI) for local high school life sciences teachers. We will provide training in the use of biotechnical equipment coupled with lessons that meet national and local curriculum standards. The hands-on laboratory exercises will be grouped into four easily understood modules spread out over two days. Participating teachers will each receive a stipend of $100.00 per day along with a loaned ABE “kit” for several weeks during the school year to engage students with authentic science experiences that increase their knowledge of biotechnology and life sciences. Returning teachers will be trained in a newly offered module introducing column chromatography, and will have a chance to talk to new teachers about pacing, curriculum, etc.
When: July 18–19, 2023 for first-time teachers (8:00 am–4:00 pm), July 19–20, 2023 for returning teachers (12:00 pm–4:00 pm on the 19th, 8:00 am–4:00 pm on the 20th)
Where: Norton Health Science Center, Bellarmine University, Louisville, KY
