The CUR Education Division’s Institute 2018 is designed specifically to assemble a critical mass of educators from Schools of Education and education-related fields, to scale up its work toward the attainment of the following goals.   

  • Address the issues and challenges that facilitate and/or inhibit the adoption of Undergraduate Research into the complex activities of teaching and learning within educational units and institutions;
     
  • Design together high-impact learning experiences, including undergraduate research, and facilitate their inclusion into their curriculum through signature pedagogies that are unique to the Learning Sciences, and educational institutions; and
     
  • Provide leadership for networks/communities of educators to support the full adoption of undergraduate research in educational institutions.

The division encourages the participation of teams of three to five participants, including deans/dean representatives, department chairs, program coordinators, and faculty members.

  •  A description of why a particular individual or why your team members were chosen to participate.

One $50.00 application fee is due at the time of application. Should you be accepted to attend the institute, your application fee will be applied to your tuition fees. In the event that CUR does not accept your application, the $50.00 application fee will be refunded. Should you withdraw your application or elect not to participate in the institute, the $50.00 application fee will be forfeited. Team member substitutions are allowed. Should your team member withdraw your application, the application fee will be forfeited.

Upon notification of acceptance, CUR will invoice your institution for the amount of $675 per accepted participant (CUR Enhanced Members), $750 (CUR Institutional Members), $825 (CUR Individual Members), or $925 (Non-CUR Institutional Members). If you are not sure whether your school is a member, please refer to the list of Enhanced and institutional members by clicking here or contact CUR's Director of Membership. A $50.00 credit will appear on your invoice for any application fees received. The registration fee includes all sessions, materials, and meals (Friday evening through Sunday noon). Transportation to the hotel from an airport or train station is the responsibility of the registrant.

All tuition fees are due 30 calendar days prior to the start of the event. To guarantee that a place is held, payment for the institute must be received in the National Office by this date, unless prior arrangements are made with the National Office. Participants that have not paid may be dropped from registration, unless payment arrangements have been made with the National Office. In the event that a participant is dropped from registration, the application fee will not be refunded. 

Should your team need to cancel or any individual member of the team cancel, the National Office must receive written notice of the cancellation thirty calendar days prior to the Institute.  In the event of a cancellation application fees will not be refunded. Cancellations received before the cancellation date will not be held responsible for registration fees, however the application fee will not be refunded.  Participants canceling after this date will be responsible for the full fee. Institutions may not substitute one participant for another without prior approval of the National Office.

CUR always suggests that their registrants purchase low-cost travel insurance when booking their air reservations. Not only will this insurance cover your airfare in the event of cancellation but will also cover the registration cost for the meeting you were to attend. Ask your travel agent about it.
