Applying biosafety standards

September has been declared National Biosafety Stewardship Month by the National Institutes of Health, and UD Environmental Health and Safety and the University Biosafety Committee are supporting the awareness campaign.

During the October event, participants will work through the phases of a team project while exploring Google Apps and other tools. Topics will include team formation, idea prioritization, product development, multi-team data collection, and assessment. Participants will leave with experience in using tools that support best practices in all of these phases of a team project.

The First Friday Roundtables are designed and sponsored through a collaboration between Academic Technology Services, the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning, and the Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education.
