ASPB Funded Programs
Resources for PIs, Programs & Professional Development
Master Educator Program
The Master Educator Program (MEP) offers financial support to successful applicants (ASPB members) to participate in focused, substantive, and practical professional development with the aim of developing undergraduate plant biology instructional materials for an active learning classroom.
MEP recipients are expected to work with a mentor experienced in teaching undergraduates with active learning methods. The mentor will serve as a sounding board and trouble-shooter as well as suggest resources and accountability measures. ASPB will coordinate mentor selection with successful applicants.
Note: The MEP RfP will be updated for 2016 to reflect several key changes (e.g. a transition to annual funding). Many elements of this MEP RfP will remain valid. Please check back for the 2016 update.
The MEP program reimburses for up to $3500 for travel to the mentor’s site as well as the Plant Biology annual meeting in the year following the grant year. MEP winners will present their outcomes/new resources as a poster and possibly in the Education Booth.
