Topic Suggestions for Future PD Sessions

Post by Westlab » 13 May 2019, 15:43

Hi all!

We're looking to put a few PD sessions together and wanted to bounce back some topics ideas with you.

Please, vote which topics you are interested in learning more about. You can also suggest topics if not listed in the poll.

The poll will be open until 31st May. Once the poll is closed, we'll choose the winner of a free 10 pack of UNI Stoppers (size of your choice).

We would love to get your vote and suggestions on PD topics so we can add the most value to you all!

Many thanks!

Perhaps a hands-on prac, or demo, on the topic of Agar plates - preparation, use, what to avoid as well as safe disposal.

And yes - pracs that work would be great for everyone!
