Author Recruitment for Neuroscience Activities

Thank you for your interest!

Dear Colleague,

Thank you for your interest in this project! I am looking for fellow professors, instructors, and scientists to join me in creating a new set of online activities to teach basic concepts in behavioral neuroscience to undergraduate students. The activities are meant to support the material presented in my textbook An Introduction to Brain and Behavior, by Bryan Kolb, Ian Whishaw, and myself. Our goal is to bring to life for students how the nervous system works--beyond what can be accomplished on the page. 

The work will commence in June and July 2018 with the recruitment of a team of authors for these activities. We will have conference calls to determine the topics and scope of the activities. We will then divide the work and write drafts of the activities, which will combine text, animations, simulations, and assessment questions. It is not necessary for you to have any kind of background in creating educational software, though it is useful for you to have experience using electronic media in your classes. We will then be working with programmers to create the activities. Although the writing of the activities will take place mainly this summer and fall, we will also be reviewing beta test versions of the activities into the winter. Apart from some phone-based meetings, most of the work will be asynchronous. Because these activities are meant for classroom use, we are especially looking for collaborators with experience teaching these topics to university undergraduates.

If you think you would be a good match for this project, please start by filling out the survey below. From the results, we will select the most qualified respondents to complete a short sample project, so we can learn more about how you write and think about online media. All the work will be paid, including the sample project. I'm excited to get started and look forward to the creative journey. 

Thank you again for your interest! I hope you can join me.
