Below is a tentative schedule for the Ciliates in the Classroom workshop
scheduled for Wednesday, July 25th from 9:00-10:30. We have scheduled a few
presentations that we hope will generate interesting discussions, provide
useful tips for how you might use ciliates in your classrooms, and describe
some of the community resources that are available for involving students in
ciliate-based research. This schedule is subject to change as we get a better sense as to what people want from the workshop but for now it is what we hope to accomplish.
