I have had the good fortune to work at Smith College, an institution that prides itself on excellence in teaching. I have continued to learn from my colleagues at Smith, and now from colleagues dedicated to teaching at other instituions. A fantastic resource is the faculty involved in Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience or FUN. On this page I hope to share a few insights, but also to encourage continued dialogue.
