The Biophysicist Webinar Series

This series consists of five webinars to take place monthly from February to June 2021, initiated and sponsored by the Editors of The Biophysicist and the Biophysical Society’s Education Committee. The series seeks to help attendees to become more effective in their teaching of biophysics, while valuing diversity and equity among students with different backgrounds. The later Webinars will also discuss research-based approaches to teaching biophysics and introduce the participants to the field of educational research, with particular application to biophysics. Each event will last 90 minutes, featuring a 30-minute talk by a guest speaker followed by breakout groups and discussion involving the participants and the speaker.

There is no fee to attend; however, you must register separately for each webinar. A Zoom link to the webinar will be sent to all registrants in advance.
