CourseSource a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that publishes tested, evidence-based undergraduate biology activities. The articles include details in a format, style, and voice that supports replicability. Publishing activities in CourseSource provides authors with recognition of the creativity, experience, and time needed to develop effective classroom materials, while also supporting the dissemination of evidence-based teaching practices. Authors can list CourseSource articles in the peer-reviewed publication section of their curriculum vitae and use them as evidence for excellence in teaching.

CourseSource is moving to the QUBES Hub this summer! We are thrilled about this new partnership and look forward to sharing more information about CourseSource with the BioQUEST community, as well as hearing your thoughts and ideas about ways CourseSource can support you!

In this workshop, we will guide prospective CourseSource users and authors through an overview of the journal, strategies for finding high quality resources, as well as steps for submitting an article for publication. Participants will learn about the organization and search functions, have time to work in breakout rooms with partners to discuss and write manuscript ideas, and have ample opportunity to ask questions. In addition, workshop time will also be used to gather participant suggestions and ideas for how CourseSource can support a collaborative community of educators passionate about sharing their resources and ideas with one another!
