Online Workshops on Student-Centered Practices

This site provides you with information and resources that you can use to transform your lessons, courses, and  department using the principles provided in the Vision and Change document.  The resources have either been developed by PULSE Fellows and members or are freely available online and have been vetted and organized into units by PULSE Fellows and members.

There are many ways that departments can support faculty who want to make their undergraduate life sciences courses more interactive and engaging. Department Chairs can share this site with their full  and part-time faculty who can then work through the lessons on their own. The information can also be used as an online workshop that groups or cohorts of faculty work through together or it can be used to develop face-to-face workshops facilitated by your Center for Teaching staff or science education faculty.
