We are conducting an education research study, titled the “Study of Undergraduates’ Science Lab Course Experiences and Outcomes,” which may be of interest to you. In this study, we are aiming to:
At the recent CURE meeting, we had many discussions among the microbiologists about who else was using CURE. If you are coming to the ASM Conference for Undergraduate Education meeting in May, there is a session on CURE on Thursday night from 6:45-8:15 pm. Here’s a link to the abstracts for this track: http://www.asmcue.org/index.php/preliminary-program/9-program/52-session-abstracts#course-integrated

Course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) engage large numbers of students in distributed research that uses the same data and tools as scientists. From March 31 to April 2, NSF-funded CUREnet and the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory are co-hosting a meeting of a national group of instructors, along with leaders in CURE instruction and assessment, to discuss how to broaden access to and further strengthen this unique aspect of undergraduate STEM education.
