Have you developed new evidence-based teaching activities and/or lessons for online learning in biology undergraduate education? Are you interested in working with a group of peers to write and prepare your Lesson manuscript for submission to the journal CourseSource?
CourseSource is partnering with BioQUEST and QUBES to offer semester-long Faculty Mentoring Networks (FMN)! Apply now to join the Spring 2022 CourseSource Online4Bio Writing FMN.
Participants in this FMN will focus on publishing undergraduate life science lessons in teaching environments with online components (e.g., fully synchronous or asynchronous online courses, hybrid courses). Accepted applicants will write a lesson article manuscript, section by section, to prepare for submission to CourseSource. Topics may vary from a wide range of life science and educational disciplines (see current “Courses” available in CourseSource). As a part of the Spring 2022 CourseSource Online4Bio Writing FMN, members will participate in biweekly virtual sessions to collaborate with and support others in the network and receive mentoring.
The FMN is open to all instructors (including faculty, graduate students, and postdocs) who teach biology to undergraduate students and are planning to publish an online activity in CourseSource. Participants must commit to attending the full FMN which meets biweekly throughout the term. Preference is given to applicants who have taught the online activity that they will be working on at the FMN and who have not previously published in CourseSource. Faculty from community colleges and minority-serving institutions (colleges and universities) are encouraged to apply.
Applications are due December 31, 2021. Please visit the CourseSource FMN overview page for additional information and instructions on how to apply.
