Physiology Educator Community Page

Physiology Educator Community

PECOP is a community for individuals at any academic level who are excited about physiology education. Our goals are to:

  • Support physiology educators at all levels
  • Encourage physiology educators to explore and engage in evidence-based scientific teaching, scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL), and discipline based education research (DBER)
  • Empower physiology educators to become leaders in physiology education reform efforts

To join the community, simply select "PECOP Member" in your user profile and then introduce yourself on the discussion board. There is no application process or membership fee...everyone is welcome to participate.
