Program Overview

  • Developing Course-Based Research Experiences for Undergraduate Laboratory Courses: At this two day workshop, participants (teams of two from each institution) will work to: <ul> <li>learn about the benefits of CUREs for students and faculty.</li> <li>discuss the components of a course-based research experience.</li> <li>discuss barriers to implementation of course-based research experiences in laboratory courses at your institution.</li> <li>learn about strategies for overcoming barriers to implementing course-based research experiences.</li> <li>work in institutional teams to begin to develop course-based research modules for your laboratory courses.</li> <li>discuss approaches to student assessment of course-based research experiences.</li> </ul> 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.
