    CourseSource ( is hosting a Writing Studio workshop starting late afternoon on Tuesday, July 5th and ending at 2 pm Thursday, July 7th in Minneapolis, MN, just ahead of the Society for the Advancement of Biology Education Research (SABER) meeting.  We are looking for faculty, graduate students, and postdocs who are interested in attending and getting advice for preparing their manuscripts for publication in CourseSource.  

    If you are selected for the Writing Studio, we will provide $2000 travel support after the conclusion of the Writing Studio that can be used for travel, lodging, and food.  If you wish, you can also stay for the SABER meeting. 

    About CourseSource 

    CourseSource is a peer-reviewed and open-access journal that publishes tested, evidence-based undergraduate biology activities.  The articles include details in a format, style, and voice that supports replicability.  Publishing activities in CourseSource provides authors with recognition of the creativity, experience, and time needed to develop effective classroom materials, while also supporting the dissemination of evidence-based teaching practices. Authors can list CourseSource articles in the peer-reviewed publication section of their curriculum vitae and use them as evidence for excellence in teaching. 


    The Writing Studio workshop is open to instructors who teach biology to undergraduate students (including faculty, graduate students, and postdocs) and are planning to publish an activity in CourseSource.   

    We are very sorry but due to funding limitations, we can only fund individuals who are currently affiliated with US institutions.

    Preference is given to applicants who have taught the activity that they will be working on at the Writing Studio and who have not previously published in CourseSource. 

    Faculty from community colleges, primarily undergraduate institutions, and minority-serving institutions (colleges and universities) are encouraged to apply.
    Participant Benefits   

    If you are selected for the Writing Studio, we will provide $2000 in travel support after full participation in the Writing Studio. 

    The Writing Studio will provide time for you to work on your CourseSource manuscript and receive advice and feedback from editorial staff.  We will also connect you with other prospective authors. 

    Please fill out the application online at: 

    Application review will begin on April 25, 2022
