ABLE announcement

Sun Sep 24 20:35:10 EST 1995

Plant-ed:  This message is a forward from Sue Karcher regarding the next ABLE
meeting.   Please reply to Sue or Elizabeth Godrick at the e-mail addresses
listed below.  Thanks,  Jon

The 18th annual workshop/conference of ABLE will be held at Boston University
from June 11-14, 1996.  This is a call for interesting, innovative, and
reliable laboratory exercises to be presented at this meeting.
Each year the annual ABLE workshop/conference brings together a group of about
18 selected presenters with a group of about 150 participants from university
and college biology departments throughout the U.S. and Canada.  In three very
full days, participants are actively involved in at least six 3-hour laboratory
workshops.  The presenters are individuals who have developed interesting,
innovative, and reliable exercises, approaches, or systems for teaching in the
undergraduate biology laboratory.  They are asked to provide all of the
essential information and experiences that the potential user of the laboratory
would require in order to "take it home" and use the exercise in their own
teaching program.  The presenter need not necessarily be the individual who
originally created the laboratory exercise.
If you would like to present a workshop at ABLE '96 at Boston University,
please submit (1) a copy of the laboratory exercise and (2) a list of materials
required, no later than October 1, to Dr. Susan J. Karcher, Workshop selection
chair, G-225 Lilly Hall, Department of Biological Sciences, Purdue University,
