Research Teacher FellowshipView this Opportunity's Website
Frontiers in Physiology is the American Physiological Society’s (APS) flagship program for the professional development of middle and high school science teachers. Its fellowships include research experiences, summer institutes, travel to scientific meetings, and online professional development activities. Fellowship programs include the Frontiers in Physiology Teacher Fellowships and Archive Scholars Teacher Fellowships programs. Workshops are offered at Experimental Biology (the APS annual meeting), and at national and regional teacher meetings (such as National Association of Biology Teachers, National Science Teachers Association, National Middle School Association, and Human Anatomy and Physiology Society). APS records many of its workshop presentations and offers them to teachers and the broader public as webinars. The Frontiers in Physiology Research Teacher (RT) Fellowship engages teachers in cutting-edge physiology research along with year-long professional development activities that help them create a more student-centered and inquiry-based classroom. It does NOT ask teachers to add materials to their curriculum. Instead it provides tools for refining how they use their state mandated curriculum to create authentic science experiences that engage students and promote achievement.
RTs participate in three major program components:
Experiencing Scientific Research
Exploring Effective Pedagogy
Enhancing Classroom Materials
Middle and high school science teachers (grades 6-12) from all science disciplines with a minimum of one full year of teaching experience and currently teaching in a U.S. school at the time of application are eligible.Participating Institution(s):(Click an institution to see all programs it hosts)Program Materials:This Program can be Described by:
