REIL-Biology Workshop @ CUR

REIL-Biology hosted a day-long workshop preceding the annual meeting of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) conference, June 25-28, at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

At the workshop, participants worked with REIL Biology@CUR2016 facilitators (Joanna Vondrasek, Larry Wimmers, and Rachelle Spell) who have experience in course-based research to:

  • hear about the benefits of course-based research experiences for students and faculty
  • discuss the components of a course-based research experience
  • describe barriers to incorporating course-based research experiences in introductory biology at their institution
  • learn about strategies for overcoming barriers to implementing course-based research experiences
  • work in institutional teams to begin to develop research modules for their introductory biology courses
  • discuss approaches to assessing course-based research experiences
