If you are committed to improving undergraduate life sciences education and working to implement the principles and practices described in the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education: A Call to Action report, published in 2011 by AAAS, then join the Partnership for Undergraduate Life Sciences Education (PULSE). You will become part of a community of educators working to support and recognize change within academic departments in undergraduate life sciences education.
The 40 Vision & Change Leadership Fellows, selected in September 2012, are working on multiple projects as part of the PULSE initiative, which is funded by NSF, HHMI and NIH-NIGMS. If you are already a member of the community, use the PULSE website to exchange ideas, provide insights, and share resources with other members.
To learn more about PULSE, read the "Eye on Education" column in the April 2013 issue of BioScience to learn how the Vision & Change Leadership Fellows are working with the community to improve teaching within and among life science departments.
