Overview:

Established in 2013, the goal of the Teaching and Learning X Workshops (where TALX is pronounced "talks") is to take advantage of the broad teaching expertise within SICB by giving members a forum to share their most innovative ideas for teaching in their respective disciplines.

The SICB Educational Council established TALX as a moniker for these popular teaching and learning workshops because it emphasizes the multi-disciplinary nature of the Society, in the sense that "X" is replaced with a different field or topic each year.

Past workshops have included topics such as:

  • Implementation of Science Education Reform in Introductory Biology Courses
  • Evolution
  • Quantitative Biology, and
  • K-12 Outreach

These roundtable-style workshops are designed to address the needs of SICB members with respect to the following:

  • Understanding innovative pedagogies that have been developed for science classrooms and laboratories
  • Implementing new methods in the classroom
  • Engaging academic administrators so that they understand and support utilization of novel approaches to teaching
