Impressive group!  Cannot wait to see  what you come up with.  Let us know what we can do t help.

Congratulations!  We look forward to learning from you.  Thank you for your leadership!  Amy

Congratulations all!  We pledge our support and look forward to your leadership.  The challenge is tremendous and time is short.

Congrats to Judy, Heather, Alix, Loretta and Todd!!!! 

Fabulous selections.  I am excited about the potential that this group has to offer.  Congratulations!

Congratulations to all! I can't wait to see the vision become action.

Congratulations to all the ASM/NSF Biology Scholars selected.  We're SO proud of you!

Transforming the laboratory exercises into research experiences

At UPR-Cayey we are trying to substitute the traditional recipe-type laboratory exercises with research projects that have the elements of scientific inquiry.  One idea is to identify and define two or three semester-long research projects that are easy to do in terms of cost-effectiveness, materials, etc. Students would work in groups of 4-5 and present their results in a seminar at the end of the semester.  There would be lab meetings, article discussions, etc.We plan to pilot-test this idea with two lab sections (approx. 16 students each) of General Biology I next year (2013).  Among the challenges we may face are how to scale-up, the nature of the projects, integration with the lecture, and assessment, among others.Any ideas, comments and suggestions are welcome.  See More

Yale's Small World Initiative: looking for partners

Dear SW PULSE members,One of the VC recommendations is to increase student participation in research, especially for undergraduates. In 2013 Yale launched the Small World Initiative (SWI), where students collect soil samples and isolate antibiotic producing bacteria. The framework can be adapted not only for a microbiology course, but also molecular biology and general biology.In its 2nd year of implementation, only us (National University) and CSU Humboldt (this summer, not started yet) are partners in California. Pilot results indicate the framework can be adapted to a number of course setups and schedules. Yale provides lab manual material (which can be adapted), protocols, as well as free sequencing of PCR products for partners.Yale has held 2 onsite trainings, but I think the future will be more e-training and direct regional networking. Our school has implemented SWI in Costa Mesa and San Diego. I am looking for faculty in the region interested in becoming involved, as the…See More

Spreading the PULSE

Welcome PULSE Community Members! We Want You! ... to serve as ambassadors that will spread V&C nationally. If you are familiar with V&C reforms, literature that supports the implementation of such reforms, and share a passion for spreading the word at a national level, you are an ideal candidate for serving as a PULSE V&C Ambassador.The “Spreading the Pulse” working group is focused on building multiple teams of PULSE Ambassadors (visitation teams) equipped with a V&C reform toolkit (see "Toolkit" discussion, below).  The role of the Ambassadors will be to meet with biology and life science  departments to encourage them to adopt the principles and recommendations of the “Vision and Change” report. The toolkit will include resources, references, strategic planning templates, and other items. We are…See More
