Transitions Residency: From Science Education Research to Publication
Application Deadline: February 1, 2015
Developed for individuals who have initiated their research, collected preliminary data, conducted preliminary analysis of their data, and possibly presented their work to colleagues on campus, virtually, or at regional and national meetings. The goals of the Transitions Residency are to:
• Publish research on teaching and learning in biology;
• Identify collaborators for national and international STEM studies; and
• Create a community of practitioners that contribute to our understanding about teaching and learning.
Each Residency Program is a yearlong commitment comprised of several key training components including a face-to-face meeting, online “homework” assignments, and specialized peer mentoring. The Transitions Training Institute will be held July 22-25, 2015.

Travel Grants are available.
The mission of the Biology Scholars Program is to empower biologists to be leaders in science education reform and catalyze professional societies to sustain undergraduate education reform. The Program, funded in part by the National Science Foundation, is one model for transforming undergraduate biology education as set forth in the AAAS publication, Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education: A Call to Action (pp. 60-61).
Who are the Biology Scholars?
The Biology Scholar Alumni community includes over 260 national and international biology educators from community colleges, undergraduate institutions, and doctoral-granting universities, who are involved in one or more disciplinary societies.
