The PALM (Promoting Active Learning and Mentoring) Network Grant up to $2000 per Fellow / $500 mentor stipend, and $1000 meeting travel each for Fellow and mentor. The PALM Network was established to increase the use of active learning in undergraduate lecture courses. PALM guides instructors to put into practice effective methods of active learning under the sustained mentorship of other instructors with experience in evidence-based active learning. Each Fellow works individually with a mentor chosen to help the Fellow reach specific goals and objectives, but there are also shared resources, conference calls, and Network gatherings with workshops in which Fellows and mentors can learn from each other.
PALM Fellows can be postdocs aiming for a career that involves undergraduate teaching or they may be faculty at almost any stage of their academic career. They can be from any kind of post-secondary institution. PALM particularly welcomes participation from instructors at two-year institutions and minority-serving institutions. PALM is funded by NSF and addresses recommendations out forward by AAAS/ NSF in Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education.
