REMINDER - FUN Final Friday this week!
Hello all,
We will meet this Friday, February 25 at 4pm EST to discuss how we can better adapt to the reality that students enter our upper level courses from a variety of entry points and with different prerequisite experiences.  Register Here<https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMkf-irqD8pHtI_i0QOFsPQPIxQOxckyau1>

Because Neuroscience courses (and their associated programs) tend to be interdisciplinary, students can enter the major/concentration/minor through Psych, Biology, or other disciplinary programs, and have different levels of associated expertise when they get to a cross-listed upper-level course.  But, because we are interdisciplinary, we can’t have the same hierarchical structure as a “traditional” STEM major.

Please join us at for a chat and some workshopping with Amy Mulnix, PhD, Director of the Faculty Center at Franklin and Marshall College, and Jennifer Yates, PhD, Assistant Provost for Faculty Development, Teaching, & Learning and Director of the Center for Faculty Excellence at Lander University about how to use asset-based<https://www.northwestern.edu/searle/initiatives/diversity-equity-inclusion/inclusive-teaching/principle-3.html> and transparent teaching methods<https://tilthighered.com/transparency> to get all of your students on the same page, or at least in the same chapter!  When you join, please have handy an assignment description for an assessment that you use in one of your Neuroscience courses.  You might particularly think about one that incorporates group work if you have one!

Do you have Neuro colleagues who are not FUN members – send along this invite, improve your whole program!

We hope you can join us!
