Graduate students in Behavioral Neuroscience and Neuroscience at OHSU are welcome to participate in various outreach activities, in winter term at Portland State University, during spring semester at Washington State University in Vancouver, and during the summer in both Vancouver and Portland Public Schools…

Graduate students may join ongoing advanced undergraduate neuroscience classes at PSU and WSU-V by enrolling in a teaching practicum course at OHSU (BEHN 650) in winter.

OHSU graduate students gain valuable undergraduate teaching experience by preparing month long mini-courses covering ongoing neuroscience research (e.g., drug dependence and abuse, learning and memory, adolescent brain development), and by teaching advanced PSU or WSU-V students about these currently funded efforts.

DRAFT sample syllabi from Portland State University (from winter term 2014) and Washington State University (from spring semester 2014) are available below…

SYLLABUS Advanced Neuro PSU 2014
SYLLABUS Adv 473 WSU-V 2014

For more information on how to enroll in this Behavioral Neuroscience teaching practicum, and how to complete and submit the required Teaching Activity Approval forms, please contact Suzanne Mitchell at mitchesu@ohsu.edu.  Please also email Bill Griesar at bgriesar@wsu.edu to confirm your interest in participating…

Graduate students may also participate in summer outreach efforts in Vancouver and Portland Public Schools.  We offered generous travel stipends provided by the Portland Alcohol Research Center (PARC) in 2014 as compensation for seasoned, committed participants, and we hope to offer these again in 2015.  Interested students should contact Bill Griesar at bgriesar@wsu.edu…

Graduate students are also encouraged to join us to present a public lecture on their research interests at Velo Cult, a bicycle shop/event space/pub in Northeast Portland!  We pair you with an art student from PNCA, and you get unique, useful experience introducing your work to the general public.  And $1/pint sold during presentations supports neuroscience/art outreach in the public schools… :)
