Free Online Training for Finding Digital Teaching Resources

Deadline Extended! 
Applications are now due by Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Are you tired of wasting time online not finding the teaching resources that you want?
Are you looking for free science teaching resources that have been reviewed for scientific accuracy?
Do you want to network with other teachers and share effective teaching resources?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, consider applying for the American Physiological Society's Archive of Teaching Resources’ “Vision and Change” Scholars Program.

When: February 11 – April 12, 2013

Where: All online!  Work on weekly assignments at your own pace, while building community with other undergraduate educators

Who: Undergraduate Faculty in Biology, Anatomy, Physiology, and Developmental Biology who would like to become expert digital library users and online educator community contributors

What:  The Archive of Teaching Resources (www.apsarchive.org) is a free digital library of peer-reviewed science teaching materials contributed by teachers and scientific societies. As of January 2013, the Archive contained more than 5,400 peer-reviewed teaching resources including audiovisual materials, lesson plans, teaching journal articles, and scientific content materials. As part of the “Vision and Change” program, Scholars will learn how to find freely-available, peer-reviewed teaching resources in the digital library, and how to create, share, and rate resources in the Archive.  Teachers will also receive a $175 stipend for their participation.

How:  The application process is easy: submit a resume or CV, and answer a few short-answer application questions.  More information can be found in the attached PDF and at the application website at:  http://bit.ly/TPoo1X
