The Genetics Society of America is proud to partner with the American Society for Cell Biology and the American Society of Plant Biologists in the development and implementation of the Promoting Active Learning & Mentoring (PALM) Network. The PALM network was established to spark sustained biology education reform at diverse institutions through one-on-one, long-term mentorships for faculty new to approaches based on Vision and Change recommendations. PALM provides faculty and postdoctoral fellows with resources that allow them to gain hands-on experience and long-term 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.


Up to $2000 mentoring visit expenses per fellow / $500 mentor stipend /

$1000 meeting travel each for fellow and mentor
