Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE) Lunch & Learn Series


June 23, 2022

With the academic year winding down, now is the time to start looking ahead to next year. If you’re interested in incorporating a CURE into your classroom for the first time or looking to improve your use of CUREs, join colleagues as they share insights, consider strategies for implementation and lead attendees through activities to help you build or enhance CUREs in your curriculum.

Genomics Education and Research in the Undergraduate Classroom

This workshop will provide an overview of the Genomics Education Partnership, a consortium formed in 2006 with the goal of providing a Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience in genomics. This CURE has many possibilities for implementation, with curricula and projects of varying topics, scope and difficulty. Because the only materials required are a computer with an internet connection, GEP projects are a cost-effective addition to undergraduate curricula and easily adaptable to online and hybrid implementations. This workshop will include a guided tour of both an introductory curriculum and a research workflow. Participants will be able to implement some curriculum items immediately and hear how to train further to become full members of the GEP, eligible to participate directly in genomics science and education research.
