National calls to improve undergraduate STEM education have emphasized the importance of undergraduate research experiences. Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences, or CUREs, involve groups of students in addressing research problems or questions in the context of a class, and have been proposed as scalable ways of involving undergraduates in research. This interactive seminar, presented by Erin Dolan (Professor of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and Georgia Athletic Association Professor of Innovative Science Education at the University of Georgia), will offer a definition of CUREs, describe what makes them distinctive from other learning experiences, outline the state of knowledge about CURE effectiveness, and highlight results from the Freshman Research Initiative at the University of Texas at Austin as a unique and highly impactful CURE model. Please register for this event.
Please note that this workshop will now be held via Zoom. Registrants will be emailed a link by the Sheridan Center.
