Biotech Instruction

Bio-Link began with the goal of helping instructors and colleges across the nation identify the best ways to prepare students for the biotechnology workforce.  This goal encompasses identifying the critical content knowledge and skills needed for jobs at entry level and more advanced positions and finding pathways for students update and improve their skills after entering the workforce.   Not only do students need educational resources, the dynamic nature of the industry also requires biotech instructors to learn new skills throughout their careers. 

Bio-Link addresses these needs by connecting instructors to each other in national network, through professional development and by helping instructors share materials, both through the curriculum clearinghouse and Course in a Box.

Bio-Link members share specific course materials related to biotechnology instruction

Example Courses

  • Basic Laboratory Methods in a Regulated Environment
  • Cases in Industry Practice in Biotechnology
  • Embryonic Stem Cell Course (Stanford)
  • Hazardous Materials
Bio-Link's curriculum clearing house provides biotech instructional materials
