iBiology is more than an educational website; we are a community. We are looking for passionate and committed individuals who are interested in contributing to our efforts of making the world’s best biology available to all. The iBiology Ambassador (iBioAmbassador) Program is a great opportunity for students, researchers and educators to get involved in iBiology’s efforts of conveying the process by which scientific discoveries are made; increasing access to the world’s leading scientists, their research, opinions and perspectives; and supporting science education.
The overall mission of the iBioAmbassador Program is to engage members of the scientific and the science education community to make iBiology a strong and interactive community. The iBioAmbassador Program has four main goals: (1) spread the word about iBiology; (2) enhance the value of our resources; (3) help make our videos accessible to more diverse and international audiences; and (4) foster meaningful discussions with and within the scientific community. There are four main areas of ambassadorship in which you can get involved:
Types of activities you can get involved in as an iBioAmbassador
Outreach: Be a liaison between iBiology and your community, colleagues and friends and help us spread the word about iBiology.
Subtitling: Create English and non-English language subtitles for our videos.
Web Content: Write content for our website and our upcoming blog.
Education: Create resources to increase the educational value of iBiology videos and facilitate their use in the classroom.
The iBioAmbassador Program is a work in progress, so we will be constantly rolling out new projects and activities for you get involved with. There are many possibilities for you to contribute!
