Biology and Mathematics Educators (BIOME) Institute
July 27 - August 7
September 7 - November 20
Applications due June 15
Undergraduate research experiences (UREs) are an effective way to engage more students in science, increasing retention and success, and a wide range of approaches to engaging students in research experiences are possible, from paid internships to activities in lecture. Although the delivery may be different based on the institutional environment or the student’s academic level, all UREs are designed to involve students in authentic scientific experiences that are meaningful both to them and the broader scientific community. The challenge today is constructing UREs that can be effectively used in both in person and online learning environments. BioQUEST and QUBES are offering an online, sustained, community-based professional development experience to support faculty developing, implementing, or expanding UREs.
