ELLS virtual LearningLAB “The CRISPR revolution: genome editing in basic research and beyond”
Organizer: European Learning Laboratory for the Life Sciences
Type of event: taħriġ
Target groups: għalliema
Language of event: Ingliż
Secondary school science teachers are invited to attend a free professional development online course on CRISPR, which will take place from 20 September to 3 October 2021. The course will explore the use of genome editing technology in modern life sciences research and discuss its teaching in the classroom.
By the end of the two-week course, participants will be able to:
- Explore genome editing: deepen and expand their understanding of genome editing and CRISPR
- Stay current: appreciate the applications and implications of genome editing in basic research, medicine and beyond
- Teach genome editing: become familiar with a new non-laboratory, hands-on learning resource on the ethics of genome editing suitable for classroom use
The course is run by the European Learning Laboratory for the Life Sciences science education department and the EMBL-EBI Public Engagement team. The application deadline is 6 September. For more information, please click on the link.
