FUN Education Committee Announces 2014 Workshop

FUN Education Committee Announces 2014 Workshop

Submitted by Jean Hardwick

The FUN Education Committee is preparing a program for the upcoming FUN workshop to be held at Ithaca College from August 1 to August 3, 2014.  As we’ve done in previous years, the main workshop will be preceded by a smaller hands-on Laboratory Workshop (July 31- Aug 1).  As we start to develop a program, we would like to ask our members for some input.

Main workshop

·         Are there issues related to Undergraduate Neuroscience Education that you would like to see addressed at this workshop?

·           Is there a topic that you would want to present to the FUN      community?

We have only a limited number of slots available for oral presentations, but we are planning to have a poster session that would allow attendees to put up a poster related to a unique teaching activity, curricular innovation, or other ideas that would be of interest to other faculty with time for viewing posters included in the schedule.

Pre-workshop laboratory session

·         Do you have an innovative laboratory exercise that you would like to            present?

Please keep in mind that all presenters in the laboratory sessions and oral presentations in the main workshop will be asked to write up their presentation for inclusion in a special edition of JUNE.

Please send your suggestions or proposals for a presentation to:
