ICARE Academy: June 18-20, Chicago, IL

Monday, June 18, 2018 - 8:00am to Wednesday, June 20, 2018 - 4:00pmParticipation is open to those involved in U.S. animal care and use programs, including IACUC members and staff, Institutional Officials, veterinarians, animal facilities personnel, administrators, consultants, and compliance and regulatory personnel.The Interagency Collaborative Animal Research Education (ICARE) Academies use active learning and backward design to train IACUC members, staff, and institutional animal program personnel to meet their responsibilities for animal welfare oversight. ICARE Academies empower the learner to assume accountability for facts and conceptual understanding of Federal standards through the study of realistic problems encountered in animal care and use programs.

The ICARE Project is a federal multiagency initiative to empower IACUCs and their institutions to increase compliance with federal standards while minimizing regulatory burden through our active learning workshops. Active learning pedagogy has been shown to increase effectiveness of adult education in factual and theoretical understanding of scientific and ethical issues by engaging the learner in activities that require the application of high-level concepts.Chicago, ILLearn more about ICARE!https://www.regonline.com/icareacademyJune2018
