The Promoting Active Learning and Mentoring (PALM) Network is a joint venture among the American Society for Cell Biology and several other life science professional societies that focuses on developing active learning strategies for reform of the traditional lecture classroom. PALM provides faculty and postdoctoral fellows with resources that allow them to gain hands-on experience and mentorship in bringing evidence-based, effective active learning strategies into their own classrooms. The longer term goal is to lead enduring change that will positively influence the teaching culture at each PALM Fellow’s institution.
Apply for up to $2,000 mentoring visit expenses per fellow / $500 mentor stipend, plus $1,000 meeting travel each for fellow and mentor. Applications are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis.
