Hello SW PULSErs!Between December 10-16 (precise date to be announced in about a week), the SW PULSE Fellows will hold an open, live video forum to bring you up to date on what PULSE Fellows are doing around the country; what we originally envisioned for the SW group; explore your interests in facilitating departmental change in undergraduate biology education; discuss how we can work together to share best practices and challenges that we face; and discuss how you might see our group forming a regional network as a community of practice, both virtually and in the form of regional workshops and conferences. To participate in this live forum, please download the ZOOM videoconferencing app at https://www.zoom.us.  Watch this space, we will post more information, an agenda, and a ZOOM address. See you soon in our first open ZOOM meeting!Akif Uzman, UHD, HoustonSee More
