BioTIC: Biotechnology and Microbiology for Teachers In the Classroom

The BioTIC Institute has come to a close.  Further institutes are suspended until further funding is provided.  

The BioTIC Institute brought middle and high school biology teachers up-to-speed on the rapid advancements in biotech research, careers, applications, and issues while providing inquiry modeling/practice and curriculum enrichment that support standards related to cell structure, disease, genetics, and biotechnology.


Teachers who participated in BioTIC:

Instructors:  Dr. Jodi Goldberg, Dr. Betsy Martinez-Vaz, Dr. Irina Makarevitch, Dr. Ken Jeddeloh, and Torrey Lau

BioTIC was a statewide professional development program for secondary biology teachers presented by Hamline University's School of Education through its Center for Global Environmental Education.  Funds for this project were provided by a grant from the federal Improving Teacher Quality Program of the No Child Left Behind Act administered by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education. The project was financed by $45,000 in federal funds and $13,386 from nonfederal sources.
