From a posting that Randy made to the AP Biology listserv:
Teachers wanting to gain new teaching ideas and methods for AP Biology should consider attending an Olathe Kansas Institute from July 30th to August 3rd. Instructors: John Gehring has twenty years of experience teaching AP Biology and AP Biology Summer Institutes. He has been both a Reader and Table Leader at the AP Biology Reading for the past nineteen years and in 1999 was honored with the Siemans Award for Advanced Placement given by the Siemans Foundation. Assisting John is Robert Hamilton. Rob has fourteen years of experience teaching AP Biology, ten years as an AP Biology Summer Institute instructor and has been a Reader of the AP Biology exam for the past 6 years.
I have personally attended a previous workshop and found it instrumental in shaping my teaching. For registration go to the sponsoring university site at http://www.washburn.edu/ce/apsi/ For further information about the instructors go to http://www.ferris.edu/apinstitutes/
