Developing Course-Based Research Experiences for Undergraduate Laboratory Courses:
At this two day workshop, participants (teams of two from each institution) will work to:
▪ learn about the benefits of CUREs for students and faculty.
▪ discuss the components of a course-based research experience.
▪ discuss barriers to implementation of course-based research experiences in laboratory
courses at your institution.
▪ learn about strategies for overcoming barriers to implementing course-based research
▪ work in institutional teams to begin to develop course-based research modules for your
▪ discuss approaches to student assessment of course-based research experiences.
On the second day of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to get feedback on their CURE ideas and will have a closing session on how student assessment data may be pursued as publishable research to improve learning outcomes for your students.
HBCU STEM Faculty will learn how to improve learning and teaching in their laboratory courses and begin exploring opportunities to conduct research on course-based undergraduate research (CUREs) in the context of HBCUs. This is not a prescriptive program, faculty will build on their interests, expertise and current teaching assignments. Faculty participants will get feedback on their plans from other workshop participants and from the workshop facilitators.
