Biology Education Intersegmental Collaborative (BEIC)
The call for proposals to the NSF-Research Coordination Network BEIC (Biology Education Intersegmental Collaborative), which aims to facilitate the development, implementation, and dissemination of teaching or research projects collaboratively developed by 2yr/4yr teams, has now opened for both new participants as well as mentors. This is the second year of our RCN with a wonderful first cohort of participants from institutions across the country.
The BEIC process includes each team being paired with a mentor, attending a Summer Institute on Scientific Teaching specific for the program, and working with the journal CourseSource to disseminate the developed projects. Participants will also be encouraged to share their work at SABER and SABER West.
Applications for both teams and mentors are open until March 12th. If you have questions about BEIC - please feel free to reach out to Brian (email@example.com).
