LifeSciTRC: an international teaching community - now open for Members

We're pleased to announce that the Life Science Teaching Resource Community (LifeSciTRC) now has a dedicated portal for Members and is open for resource submissions.

What is the LifeSciTRC?

The LifeSciTRC is a digital repository, managed by the American Physiological Society (APS), containing over 7,000 peer-reviewed life science education materials. It also provides a platform for online teaching communities, offering users the opportunity to engage with other teaching professionals via blogs and discussion forums. The Physiological Society became a Partner of the LifeSciTRC in 2014 and since then has worked with the APS to set up its own portal, which will enable Members to share resources, peer-reviewed by other Members in their field.

What are the benefits of sharing a resource on the LifeSciTRC?

Further to reaching an international audience, resources on the LifeSciTRC are also searchable on the BioSciEd Net Portal and National Science Digital Library, thereby expanding the potential reach of your resource with no extra effort. The copyright would remain with you and you would also have the option to publish an abstract describing the resource in the APS journal, Advances in Physiology Education.

If you have a teaching or public engagement resource you’d like to share, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Every Member who submits a resource by 30 September 2016 will be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 John Lewis voucher.

Can I become a reviewer?

Any Affiliate or full Member of The Society is welcome to become a LifeSciTRC reviewer. Please email if you are interested.

How can I find out more about the LifeSciTRC?

More information is available in our education section.

An introductory workshop will be held at The Society’s joint meeting with the APS, Physiology 2016, on Friday 29 July, 2pm.
