For years, members of the American Physiological Society (APS) have asked for more resources related to physiology education. As part of the strategic plan APS created two years ago, the group decided to act on that feedback. About a week ago, that work culminated with the launch of the Center for Physiology Education (CPE).
“The impetus really arose from an unmet need within the society for those APS members who saw themselves primarily as educators,” said CPE Advisory Board Chair Terrence Sweeney, Ph.D. “We worked on developing a brand-new community within the society that would really focus on the needs of educators, build that community, and allow them to help one another more easily.”
APS used input from more than 500 physiology educators and researchers to develop the CPE site, which focuses on resources across five themes: evidence-based teaching practices, inclusive teaching, teaching and learning integrative physiology, physiology education research, and curriculum development.
