ASM M(icro)OOCs

Series Overview

Having offered blended and online courses in teaching, publishing, and career development for the last several years, the Education Board has fast become one of the Society’s most seasoned developers of training via webinar technology. To broaden participation in these trainings, the Board launched a new webinar series, ASM M(icro)OOCs, in summer 2014. Based on the concept of “massive open online courses” the ASM MOOCs offers professional development webinars on topics of interest to science educators.
