BRING YOUR RESEARCH TO THE STUDENTS

BRING YOUR RESEARCH TO THE STUDENTS

Travel funds available for teams of research and education faculty to develop research modules for introductory biology laboratory classes

Supported by NSF-­‐UBE REIL-­‐Biology

http://rcn.ableweb.org/

Why course-­‐based research?

Students gain when they experience real research in intro bio lab classes.

  • Meet the challenge of Vision and Change to increase student exposure to research
  • Expand exposure to all students in introductory Biology laboratory classes
  • High impact pedagogy increases student interest in science careers

 

Why apply?

Get support for developing lab modules using your research.

  • Faculty need time and support to develop new lab class modules
  • Collaboration of research education faculty from one institution can address specific needs and opportunities

 

What?

REIL-­‐Biology sponsors a one-­‐day workshop immediately preceding national conferences. Participants will work with faculty who have experience in course-­‐based research to:

  • hear about the benefits of course-­‐based research experiences for students and faculty
  • learn strategies for overcoming barriers to implementing course-­‐based research experiences
  • work in institutional teams to develop research modules for their intro biology courses

 

How?

We support the costs of a research and education faculty collaborators who are not members to travel to the workshop and conference at (apply at http://rcn.ableweb.org/network-­‐ workshop-­‐meetings/ )
