Northwest PULSE Meeting in Seattle-October 4-6, 2013 at Talaris Conference Center

October 4, 2013 at 2pm to October 6, 2013 at 12pm
The Northwest (NW) has 6 PULSE Fellows from diverse institution types, and these individuals have come together to form the Northwest PULSE working group. Using funds from a recently awarded NSF EAGER (NSF #1347553), this group seeks to build upon the momentum generated by the PULSE Leadership Fellows’ work to create a NW V&C Community of Practice (COP), a network of colleges and universities in the NW (AK, WY, MT, ID, WA, OR). Institutions that join the COP will use the resources and tools…See More

Southwest PULSErs

Please share this group with others This group is intended as a networking site for PULSE community members from the US Southwest and Hawaii. Please add ideas for regional conferences, let your regional colleagues know about your PULSE-related activities, etc. If you would like to be contacted in the future in order to get involved in specific initiatives, please fill out the recruitment form. If you know of someone who isn't yet a member of this group, please feel free to invite them.See More

Transforming the laboratory exercises into research experiences

At UPR-Cayey we are trying to substitute the traditional recipe-type laboratory exercises with research projects that have the elements of scientific inquiry.  One idea is to identify and define two or three semester-long research projects that are easy to do in terms of cost-effectiveness, materials, etc. Students would work in groups of 4-5 and present their results in a seminar at the end of the semester.  There would be lab meetings, article discussions, etc.We plan to pilot-test this idea with two lab sections (approx. 16 students each) of General Biology I next year (2013).  Among the challenges we may face are how to scale-up, the nature of the projects, integration with the lecture, and assessment, among others.Any ideas, comments and suggestions are welcome.  See More

Yale's Small World Initiative: looking for partners

Dear SW PULSE members,One of the VC recommendations is to increase student participation in research, especially for undergraduates. In 2013 Yale launched the Small World Initiative (SWI), where students collect soil samples and isolate antibiotic producing bacteria. The framework can be adapted not only for a microbiology course, but also molecular biology and general biology.In its 2nd year of implementation, only us (National University) and CSU Humboldt (this summer, not started yet) are partners in California. Pilot results indicate the framework can be adapted to a number of course setups and schedules. Yale provides lab manual material (which can be adapted), protocols, as well as free sequencing of PCR products for partners.Yale has held 2 onsite trainings, but I think the future will be more e-training and direct regional networking. Our school has implemented SWI in Costa Mesa and San Diego. I am looking for faculty in the region interested in becoming involved, as the…See More

Spreading the PULSE

Welcome PULSE Community Members! We Want You! ... to serve as ambassadors that will spread V&C nationally. If you are familiar with V&C reforms, literature that supports the implementation of such reforms, and share a passion for spreading the word at a national level, you are an ideal candidate for serving as a PULSE V&C Ambassador.The “Spreading the Pulse” working group is focused on building multiple teams of PULSE Ambassadors (visitation teams) equipped with a V&C reform toolkit (see "Toolkit" discussion, below).  The role of the Ambassadors will be to meet with biology and life science  departments to encourage them to adopt the principles and recommendations of the “Vision and Change” report. The toolkit will include resources, references, strategic planning templates, and other items. We are…See More
