"In physiology, as in all other sciences, no discovery is useless, no curiosity misplaced or too ambitious, and we may be certain that every advance achieved in the quest of pure knowledge will sooner or later play its part in the service of man." — Ernest Henry Starling

Why should you attend the ITL?
Join us for the first American Physiological Society Institute on Teaching and Learning (ITL)! This conference will engage educators (community/4-year college through professional school) in interactive sessions on best practices in teaching, learning and assessment. Whether you are an experienced educator or new to teaching, it will challenge you to gain skills in designing and implementing educational research in your classroom and in learning how to share your findings with colleagues. The meeting will include plenary talks, concurrent workshops, poster sessions, and time to network with your colleagues. After the meeting, participants can continue their discussions and collaborations through a new Community of Practice online portal at the APS Archive of Teaching Resources. Connect with teaching colleagues at the 2014 ITL!

Why should YOU take the new APS Professional Skills Training Course on Teaching and Learning? This course will help anyone who is currently teaching (or will soon be teaching) at the undergrad through professional school level. It will include basics on designing curricula, developing effective teaching skills, using authentic assessment, and implementing course management. In addition, you will learn skills that will help you reflect on and evaluate your own teaching, allowing your teaching to consistently improve. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to learn how to teach from colleagues who are outstanding educators! Click here for more information about the PST.
