Do you have a fantastic toxicology lesson you’d like to share with fellow educators or an idea for a toxicology lesson that you’d like to pitch and get feedback on before digging deeper? Come to the Education-Career Development Session “Publishing Education Toxicology Exercises in CourseSource: A Step-by-Step Workshop for Preparing Your Manuscript” during the Annual Meeting, on Monday, March 28, from 1:45 pm to 4:30 pm in Ballroom 6C of the San Diego Convention Center. Those registered for the Annual Meeting also can access the livestreamed and recorded session.

The session will kick off with CourseSource Managing Editor Erin Vinson, who will describe the online journal, the SOT Undergraduate Toxicology Learning Framework, and how to create manuscripts from the process from ideation to completion. Next, three SOT members (Josh Gray, Lauren Aleksunes, and Mindy Reynolds) who have submitted their own manuscripts to CourseSource will discuss their authorship experience and a bit about these lessons. For the remainder of the session, participants will spend time crafting their lessons and getting feedback from their peers and the speakers as they work. Make sure to bring your notebook or personal computer for the best possible experience.

Whether you have a new idea that you want to toss around with colleagues or have a well-tuned exercise that you’ve been using for years, this session will help you develop your idea and prepare it for submission to CourseSource. The course you’re using in the lesson doesn’t need to be toxicology, as long as it uses Learning Objectives from the Undergraduate Toxicology Learning Framework. Let us know if you are planning to attend by completing this form.

We’re excited to host this first-ever writing workshop and look forward to seeing you there!
