PULSE Regional Networks

Department-level change, like teaching, is an intellectually challenging enterprise.  

The PULSE Community is forming regional networks, dedicated to the formation of local communities that can exchange knowledge, ideas, and resources in support of department-level transformations that advance evidence-based teaching.  Through faculty networks, we learn from each other and take heart in the knowledge that amazing, dedicated scholars across the country are working towards similar goals.  

Check out these regional partnerships for undergraduate life science education:

I'm looking for information on "typical" success rates for freshman biology (science majors). If you know of sources for this information, or if you know the typical pass rate (a-c) at your institution, could you comment? Thanks!

Thanks David...precisely the type of coordination we were hoping for.

@ Gina,The StP Ambassador group would like to coordinate with you to amplify the impact of the regional workshops. We will be discussing this at our March meeting, with both Heather and Sharon present. Hopefully, links to the StP Resources site can be added to your site, and information on how follow up to the workshops can be obtained through the Ambassadors.

The regional workshop site looks great, BTW!

Are there any specific examples of active learning activities that are being  used in majors or non-majors biology courses that you would like to share?
