Registration for the 2023 FUN Summer Workshop at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA is now open!  The workshop will be held from July 27th to July 30th, 2023

The theme of the 2023 FUN Workshop “Re-imaging Neuroscience Education” will empower educators to pursue inclusive excellence in neuroscience through high-impact pedagogical practices. Workshop topics will include a broad array of ideas, approaches and techniques: inclusive pedagogy and active learning approaches for the neuroscience teaching lab, research lab, and classroom; student and faculty mindsets, identities, and wellness; integrative STEM education; and decolonization of neuroscience education. Faculty will also have the opportunity to participate in teaching demonstrations, mini symposia, and a poster session.

Oliver Rollins, PhD, from the University of Washington is our keynote speaker. Dr. Rollins is author of the book, “Conviction: The Making and Unmaking of the Violent Brain”. Please see the attached flyer.
