WIRED Biology!

An invitation............  AGAIN!  I received several excellent responses
to my previous call for presenters and am repeating the invitation.  If you
are not interested personally, please pass along this invitation to
colleagues who are "into" this kind of technology.



Do you use computers and/or the Internet in teaching biology courses?
Would you be willing to share your successes (and failures!) with
colleagues?  The Botanical Society of America (and the Canadian Botanical
Society and other societies) will be meeting with the American Institute of
Biological Sciences August 3-7, 1997 in Montreal.

I am organizing a symposium designed to familiarize our colleagues with
ways they can use computer technology, World Wide Web, etc. to teach a wide
array of biology courses more effectively.  The symposium's title is "WIRED
Biology:  Using Computers and the Internet to Enhance Teaching and
Learning."

In addition to 8-10 FORMAL presentations there is room for many more of us
to share our ideas in an INFORMAL, hands-on session that is part of the
symposium.  Again this year we will enjoy the support of our corporate
sponsor, Benjamin Cummings Publishers.

If you are willing to be considered for the formal OR informal (hands-on)
portions of the symposium OR BOTH, please send me, via e-mail, your name
and a brief description of what you would like to share (official titles
and abstracts will be required later).  Those who presented at last
summer's symposium in Seattle found it very helpful to meet the other
presenters, hear what they are doing, and share helpful suggestions.

Let me hear from you!
