Undergraduate Neuroscience Curriculum Development


The biennial FUN Undergraduate Neuroscience Workshops have generated important blueprints for curriculum development. These guides to program design are freely available through JUNE.

 

Additional peer-reviewed papers on undergraduate neuroscience teaching can be found at the Journal of Neuroscience Education (JUNE).  JUNE is the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience's online journal for undergraduate neuroscience faculty that publishes peer-reviewed reports of innovations in undergraduate neuroscience education. JUNE serves as a mechanism for faculty to exchange information regarding topics such as laboratory exercises, new media, curricular considerations, and teaching methods.
