Faculty Development

APS is involved in developing resources and materials for undergraduate faculty development both through its own programs and in collaboration with other organizations. Use the links below to explore programs, fellowships and resources for undergraduate faculty development.


Physiology Education Community of Practice (PECOP) Fellowship

PECOP Fellows are undergraduate physiology educators who: interact, share resources, and collaborate on an ongoing basis; learn and apply effective scientific teaching methods in their classrooms, such as student-centered learning emphasized in Vision and Change; and use scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) methodologies to improve their teaching.


The LifeSciTRC Scholars Online Workshop is designed to help faculty and teachers become both proficient digital library users and contributors to the LifeSciTRC Community of Practice.

Human Anatomy & Physiology Society Institute (HAPS-I)

The HAPS Institute offers working Anatomy and Physiology professors the opportunity to earn graduate credits in a variety of flexible formats tailored to their busy schedule. Join our courses for professional development.

Physiology Insights

This grant-funded program included both faculty development workshops and summer research fellowships.

BioSciEdNet (BEN) Scholars

BEN Scholars are undergraduate faculty leaders in biological sciences teaching and learning, with a passion for improving undergraduate education. They receive (1) training in leadership and effective use of digital libraries, (2) resources to use in their own classrooms and to share with colleagues through presentations, workshops, and one-on-one mentoring, (3) integration into the BEN Scholars Network, (4) recognition from BEN collaborators, and (5) travel support, as well as a small stipend. Applications are accepted annually.
