 SESSIONS AT ASMCUE 

 



Networking Sessions


Sharing Issues, Finding Local Support, and More


One of the top reasons attendees give for attending ASMCUE is the opportunity to network with fellow educators. Meals at the Conference are intentionally served as a group to allow a time and place for this important networking to occur. This year, the three breakfast meals have been organized to maximize attendee interaction.

Friday - Breakfast by Topical Areas
Several issues have been identified by the Steering Committee such as implementing the lab safety guidelines, community colleges issues, online teaching, Meet the JMBE Board, LINK Program, iTeach, and more.  If you have a topic for an interest group, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Saturday - Breakfast by Location
ASM's supports thirty-five Branches organized by geographical territories that are defined by one or more states and/or zip code areas. On site, attendees will receive information about their branch and region and be encouraged to meet others in the same vicinity. International attendees will have an opportunity to meet as well.

Sunday - Free for All!
You are on your own! Take a chance. Sit at a table where you recognize no one. Experienced faculty, introduce yourself to a first-timer. First-timers, hobnob with a speaker or ASM leader. Go outside your comfort zone! You never know, you may meet a collaborator or a friend for life. Many close friendships were born and nurtured at an ASMCUE meeting. 



Microbrew Session: Mixing Ideas for Successful Teaching Strategies in Microbiology

These sessions provide a forum for attendees to share ideas and thoughts on best practices in microbiology and biology education. Oral presenters are selected from attendees submitting abstracts for consideration in the Microbrew categories and give 15 minutes "chalk-talks" in which they share their activity.


  

Poster Presentation Session

The poster abstracts are organized by both content and pedagogy. The content themes are evolution, cell structure and function, metabolic pathways, information flow and genetics, microbial systems, and impact of microorganisms. For the purposes of ASMCUE, a seventh concept, advancing STEM education and research has been added to the abstract in order to identify authors working in this broader-scoped area. The pedagogy themes are organized into five categories: course design, hands-on projects, student learning, teaching approaches, and teaching tools.
