SEB is continuing a tradition of providing Teaching Workshops at the 2015 conference in South Africa. As in the past, these optional workshops will provide a hands-on activity useful to teaching in ethnobiology. In the past, participants have received opportunities to learn more about creating fibers from plants, Caribbean medicinal teas and bush baths, introduction to flintknapping, the biogeography of the family meal, training in ethnoecology and the lists goes on. We are currently looking for possible workshops to host at the 2015 conference proceedings. Through this call, we invite you to propose a workshop. Workshops must be hands-on and have a tangible measurable outcome. All workshops come with a budget of $25. Budgets greater than this amount will be considered with ample justification.

If you are interested, please send an email to Sunshine Brosi (slbrosi@frostburg.edu) with the following details by March 15th, 2015.

  • The title of your presentation and detailed summary of your specific objectives, activities, and measurable outcomes of participation;
  • A budget;
  • The requested amount of time to complete the activity; and
  • The number of people who may take the workshop.
