The Illinois Association of Community College Biologists seeks to promote excellence in teaching and learning throughout the state of Illinois, with a primary emphasis on providing a forum for communication and collegiality. The annual conference invites speakers with expertise in a variety of biological disciplines, which serves to update members on the current understanding in the discipline presented. Panel discussions at the conferences have address concerns in educational theory and practice, curricular items and course articulation (IAI) issues. Instructional practice "swap sessions" have allowed educators to exchange valuable tips on teaching difficult concepts. And, textbook publishers demonstrate current offerings-texts, instructional software, course management tools and laboratory equipment. The annual conference overall- provides information sharing on many levels, and an opportunity to network with the best educators in the state.
