Biology Scholars Teaching with Data: Quantitative Skills for Microbiology Students

Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center

North Bethesda, MD

Application are now closed.

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM; and Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis (QUBES; are pleased to offer a unique professional development experience to support undergraduate faculty as they step up to the challenge of enhancing students' quantitative skills. This year long professional development program combines a two day workshop (July 20-21, 2016) in North Bethesda, MD with an online community of peers to support development and implementation. The Bethesda cohort of the Biology Scholars Teaching with Data will focus on adapting microbiology modules that use data for use in the undergraduate classroom.

Who should apply? Applications are now closed.
Microbiology faculty, particularly future and early career faculty, interested in incorporating data driven modules into introductory through advanced undergraduate microbiology courses. 

What will cohort participants do?
Participants will work with mentors who have developed modules and other cohort members to support one another by sharing resources, providing feedback and brainstorming new ideas as they develop and implement new teaching approaches using data. Additional information is available on the schedule page.

What are the goals of the BSTD Bethesda cohort?

  • Identify challenges to teaching quantitative skills in microbiology and explore effective methods to address these challenges.
  • Work with your BSTD colleagues to develop a plan to address a challenge in your class.
  • Implement your plan, and share the outcomes with your BSTD colleagues for feedback to enhance learning.
