About the Education Division

The Education Division was established at CUR's 2015 Annual Business Meeting. This division is charged with providing national and professional leadership in developing undergraduate research in the areas of teaching and learning, the learning sciences, teacher education, and related disciplines (e.g. speech pathology, school counseling, and educational leadership).
Specifically, the division:
  • Isolates, articulates, and addresses 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, particularly with regard to teacher preparation and induction.
  • Brings together the critical mass of educators who can facilitate the inclusion of high-impact learning experiences, specifically undergraduate research, into curricula through practices and models of undergraduate research that are unique to educational institutions, teacher education-related programs, and associated fields and professions. 
  • Advocates and provides leadership for networks/communities of educators to support the full adoption of undergraduate research in educational institutions.
  • Brings together the critical mass needed to address the need for sustained system-wide student-centric pedagogical practices in education and education-related practices.
  • Creates a cohesive community of academics best prepared to engage granting agencies with goals to affect prospective educators and their respective community of practice.
