Organized by the ASHG Undergraduate Education Working Group in conjunction with the Information and Education Committee.

This workshop, held in conjunction with the ASHG Annual Meeting each year, covers human genetics content and pedagogies for faculty who teach biology courses that have significant genetics content. The overarching goal is to encourage effective teaching of human genetics and to improve the genetic literacy of students enrolled in such classes. Students/postdocs serving as teaching assistants or interested in teaching are welcome as well.
