I'm sorry I joined late - is this or will this site you are showing us be available soon? Or not until fall? or next year?  Or how do we find this page?  On Pulse site? Thank you Nancy

The url for the online workshop is www.tinyurl.com/4pulse

Although it is a work in progress, it is currently available. You will need to register  to access the site..

Thank you for the update!

I am interested in tools for Departmental Transformation.  In particular I would like to find a survey tool for faculty, the results of which could be shared with all members of the department.  The goal would be to help identify the priorities of faculty, percieved problems with the current curriculum, specific courses faculty feel need to be changed, etc.  Having some anonimity helps people get their opinions out in the open and begins the discussion about what kind of changes the department should persue.

The "Taking the PULSE" group is developing rubrics for self-assessment.  Once developed, then they may provide a starting point for such discussions


Not totally related to this conversation, but had some questions about the V&C conference this August.  Is there a reason that only institutions with an accepted abstract are invited to attend?  We submitted an abstract but it was not accepted.  We know that we are not at the same place as other institutions in terms of reform, but would be great to see more of what others are doing?

Hi Kristin, the PULSE group is not involved with the organization of the V&C conference that is being offered in August so I do not have an answer to your question.

Hi Kristin,

You may be interested in submitting your proposal to this workshop:

NABT Call for Proposals:
Faculty Professional Development Summit “Implementing Vision and Change”

The NABT Four-Year College & University Section’s Professional Development Committee invites you to submit a proposal to present your innovative teaching practice as part of the 2013 Faculty Professional Development Summit.

If you would like to share your work in implementing innovative teaching with other biology educators, we encourage you to submit a proposal to the Summit. Please include:

  • Title of Submission
  • Names of author(s) with organization affiliation(s)
  • Contact information for notification
  • Abstract (up to 200 words)
  • Project description: In a 1-2 page word document, please describe your Vision and Change innovation in biology education. The description should describe the background that prompted the change, development and implementation of the change, materials developed, problems and successes encountered, and any formal assessment performed.
