Personal Genetics Education Project

Professional Development

How does genetics intersect with issues of social justice? As genetic technologies become more widespread, how can our society ensure that education about and access to this information is available to all people? Our workshops explore examples of the hopes, realities and controversies in personal genetics and make connections to real world opportunities and conundrums your students and their families are likely to face in the coming years. They are designed for teachers from all disciplines, including biology, social studies, law, government, health, humanities, and bioethics.

Interested in a PD in your area?

We offer workshops, ranging from a 1-2 hour session to a 3-day course for which we award professional development points. We also present at state, regional, and national teacher conferences.
