At Raising the PULSE:

Our initiative in the Raising the PULSE working group is to excite, inform and inspire! We want to excite you about transforming Undergraduate Life Science Education.  Positive change to teaching and learning is possible, and well within your reach. These changes will benefit your students, your department, and ultimately, your school.

We will make information about the Vision and Change, and other initiatives, accessible. We will help you recognize the relevance of the Vision and Change initiative and its power to increase the effectiveness of teaching and learning at your institution. We also want to applaud and share your departmental techniques and the stories of  your successful transformations!

Our Goals are to:

  1. Get the word out about the Vision and Change Call to Action initiatives,
  2. To tie together the work of the PULSE working groups,
  3. To keep you informed of new initiatives, events and ideas and,
  4. To give you a platform to make sure your voices, input and successes are heard.

The PULSE working Groups:

  1. Raising the PULSE – This group is devoted to raising awareness of Vision and Change, celebrating the good work already underway around the country, and inspiring other departments to embrace the challenge.
  2. Taking the PULSE – This group is devoted to helping departments/institutional use existing assessment evidence and is designing new tools to evaluate progress in departmental institutional efforts to implement Vision and Change.
  3. Faculty Networks – A group devoted to building regional and national faculty networks and disseminating a blend of new and existing resources for faculty development.
  4. V & C Ambassadors – A group devoted to recruiting and training PULSE members to work as departmental V&C facilitators through departmental visits.

On behalf of the Raising the PULSE working group, we would like to thank you for your hard work and invite you to join us in transforming Life Science Education across the U.S.

Three critical conversations about flipped learning article by Robert Talbert

This blog post by Robert Talbert suggests starting 3 related, but key conversations in response to common student questions or complains about the flipped class.http://www.facultyfocus.com/articles/effective-teaching-strategies/three-critical-conversations-started-sustained-flipped-learning/In my experience, such conversations may not make these students happy about the flipped class, but they do promote greater acceptance. By the way, you can keep up with and converse with Robert Talbert on Twitter: @RobertTalbert See More
