"I would urge, that a thorough study of Human Physiology is, in itself, an education broader and more comprehensive than much that passes under that name. There is no side of the intellect which it does not call into play, no region of human knowledge into which either its roots, or its branches, do not extend." — Thomas Henry Huxley
Frontiers in Physiology is the American Physiological Society’s (APS) flagship program for the professional development of middle and high school science teachers. Frontiers has four main goals and objectives:
Fulfillment of these goals is accomplished through five programs:
In each program, teachers and physiologists work collaboratively to improve science education at middle and high school levels. For more information on each program, including application information, click on “Teacher Fellowships,” “Local Outreach Teams,” and “K-12 Seminar” in the navigation at left.
The Frontiers in Physiology program, launched in 1990, is founded on an educational research-based framework, enhancing its overall impact on teaching and learning. For more information, click on “About the Program” in the navigation at left.
The impacts of the program are evaluated regularly, using both quantitative and qualitative measures and employing both internal and external evaluation methods. Evaluation reports, presentations, and articles can be accessed through the “Program Impacts” link in the left navigation.
Frontiers in Physiology has produced numerous resources for classroom teaching and professional development. Click on “Teaching Resources” in the left navigation.
Funding for Frontiers in Physiology is provided by the APS and numerous funding agencies. For a listing of current and past funding, click on “Funding Sources” in the left navigation.
