Plan to attend the 2020 FUN Undergraduate Neuroscience Education Workshop.  Case studies, plenary presentations, small group sessions, a poster session, and individual consultations will address numerous dimensions of undergraduate neuroscience education, including developing and sustaining rigorous and inclusive curricula, dissolving institutional and departmental barriers, building institutional teams committed to reform, funding innovative efforts, program evaluation and assessment, study away, community outreach, and more.  Sessions will be of interest to neuroscience faculty members at all career stages, as well as department chairs, deans, development officers, and others with responsibilities for strengthening undergraduate programs, particularly those that cross disciplinary boundaries in and with science and mathematics in general, and neuroscience specifically.

This ninth FUN summer workshop convenes at the site of the first FUN workshop 25 years ago.  If you have yet to attend a FUN workshop, or if you have attended all nine, you will not want to miss the 2020 Workshop at Davidson.  Watch for registration to open in January 2020 and come for a weekend devoted to undergraduate neuroscience education so unique that it only comes every three years.
