What is the Education Share Fair? 

This session is designed for educators to create or revise lesson plans or activities. Proposals can be submitted for ideas and lessons at any stage of development. You receive immediate feedback and suggestions from your peers in a friendly, constructive environment.

This allows you to develop new lessons or to work on modifying currently existing lessons to a new grade level, teaching style, or learning objective(s). Each lesson or idea will be presented by the author. Presenters spend about 15 minutes describing their lesson idea. Discussions will follow where participants are invited to provide feedback and ideas regarding the core concepts addressed, methodology, misconceptions, assessment, or educational extensions.

Presenters are strongly encouraged to submit finished work in the LifeDiscoveryEd Digital Library.

While presentations focused on the theme are especially welcomed, presenters may submit ideas on any topic relevant to environmental or organismal biology.

To the greatest extent possible, Education Share Fair Proposals should:

We are especially interested in ideas around:

  • Adapting to and teaching disease ecology
  • Fake news, Real Science, or somewhere in between

All proposals whether focused on the theme or otherwise will be considered. We welcome presentations of ideas at any stage of development.
