APSA Educate

Dear Religion and Politics Section Members,

We received the following communication from Bennett L. Grubbs (Editor, APSA Educate) and wanted to draw your attention to this worthwhile initiative:

I hope this message finds you and your families well. As you know, many faculty have been required to move their courses online in the face of campus closures. In light of the urgent need for space to share teaching materials, we are launching a beta version of APSA’s new teaching resource library, “Educate,” ahead of schedule.

We are currently soliciting submissions of resources to form the foundation of our library and want to ensure that teaching materials focused on​ Religion and Politics are well represented. With that in mind, we hope that you will consider submitting materials to Educate and sharing this invitation with your fellow section members.

You are welcome to submit a favorite course syllabus, group activity, writing assignment, lecture materials, simulation, etc. – any materials that you have created for use in your classroom. These materials do not have to be designed for online courses, though online class materials are certainly welcome in the current environment.

You can submit course materials to Educate by visiting educate.apsanet.org and clicking the green “submit a resource” button in the top right corner of the page. Submission should only take 10-15 minutes.

We recognize that you are likely busy supporting your family, students, and colleagues through the current public health crisis, and that you may not be able to participate at this time. Our hope is to create a space where faculty can share resources and support one another at a time and in a way that best works for them.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions. You can reach the Educate team anytime at educate@apsanet.org.

All the best,
