ATE Events — June 2021

Upcoming

This all virtual event will feature keynotes and sessions on geospatial education, Web GIS, and ArcGIS Pro.

Keynote speakers:

John Nelson is a map maker, software experience designer, and writer at Esri. He works with the Living Atlas team, creating geographic data, web experiences, moderately-educational blogs, and mildly-instructional videos. He works in a small woodshed in Michigan and relishes the opportunity to chat with other map folks.

Raynah Kamau is a Kenyan native who has been living in the US since 2013. She is co-founder of Black Girls MAPP and works as a strategic adviser for partners at Esri. Black Girls MAPP focuses on community mapping and evangelizing GIS in underserved and underrepresented communities. The group celebrates black women in the field of GIS and uses maps and apps to visualize social justice issues—using location intelligence to amplify the voices of marginalized and unheard communities.

The BETA Skills ATE project will be holding two professional development courses in June:

  • BETA Skills (Biomedical Emerging Technology Applications)
  • Cyberbiosecurity "Where Bio and Cybersecurity Worlds Intersect"

Both courses are designed for US-based instructors and K12 STEM teachers who wish to enhance their knowledge in Tissue Engineering and Biomedical Devices. Course delivery will include a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous online learning.  Neither course has an in-person component.

Major topics:

  • Introduction to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices)
  • Introduction to Biomedical Devices   
  • Introduction to Regenerative Medicine & 3D Printing

EvaluATE webchats are an opportunity for small groups of ATE evaluation community members to come together to share and learn from each other in real-time. Anyone interested in evaluation is welcome to attend. Participants are encouraged to turn on their webcams and join in the conversation, offering a great opportunity to network.

The ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) is driven by, for, and with the community. Attendees gather to learn best practices and classroom strategies, hear biology education research updates and meet new colleagues who teach the same classes. Over 1,100 undergraduate biology & microbiology educators from around the world tuned in to ASMCUE 2020, their first virtual conference. Of those attendees, 96% would recommend ASMCUE Virtual to a colleague. For undergraduate educators, ASMCUE Virtual is an event not to be missed.
