The ABE Program Office is excited to announce the third cohort of the ABE Master Teacher Fellowship. It was a highly competitive field of applicants from ABE sites globally. The Fellowship was designed to address the need of supporting the development of teachers who have a passion for ABE and biotechnology. Each Fellow will receive a stipend and targeted support for their own personal professional development. Fellows will meet bi-monthly to collaborate and brainstorm on ABE pedagogy and experiences for their students.
Fellows will have access to experts from Amgen staff and other STEM-focused organizations around the world and will set and reflect on their own goals for leadership. After the intensive 1-year program, Fellows will share their expertise and curriculum with the ABE international community. Fellows will provide peer advice and guidance on how to teach ABE while engaging students and connecting them with real-world, real-time applications for ABE content and skills.
This year’s Fellows represent a wide variety of ABE program sites: Australia, Greater Los Angeles Area, Rhode Island, San Francisco Bay Area, Tampa, The Netherlands, and Türkiye.
