The Faculty Networks working group seeks to support and inspire faculty as they adopt the principles and recommendations of the "Vision and Change" report. Our approach is multi-faceted. We seek to organize and make available resources to support faculty and departments; organize regional workshops to encourage and support faculty and departments as they improve life sciences education; and engage teaching and learning centers and other experts in undergraduate STEM education. We are forming networks that can inform and sustain scholarly innovations in teaching and department-level change.
To strengthen the Faculty Network, we seek feedback from the broader community. As we learn from faculty and administrators across the country, we can refine our aims to complement and build upon the collective accomplishments of colleagues across the country working towards similar goals.
This month, we seek your input on the BIG PICTURE. Consider this concept map that the Faculty Network group sketched in October: PULSEconceptmap2012.pdf
