The Archive Scholars Online Workshop will help faculty and teachers become both proficient digital library users and contributors to the APS Archive of Teaching Resources Community of Practice. The workshop will be run as an online-only program.
The target audience for the program is undergraduate and high school faculty members who teach biology or life sciences courses. Applicants must demonstrate commitment to improving the teaching and learning in their classrooms, be actively teaching one of six target group courses (high school honors/AP/advanced biology, community college biology or anatomy and physiology, college/university anatomy, physiology, or developmental biology), and provide a recommendation from their institution for participation in the workshop. Applications will be especially sought from minority teachers and/or teachers at primarily minority institutions
After completing the Archive Scholars Online Workshop, faculty will be designated as “Archive Scholars” and will be able to:
Workshop activities will engage participants in developing their knowledge and skills and, where possible, activity content will be directly applicable to the specific courses taught by the participants. “Cookbook” activities will be avoided. The online format will include collaboration and discussion among workshop participants and mentoring by the instructors. Participants also will work at the Archive site, rating materials, sharing materials, and creating collections.
