Undergraduate Research at Scale: What if the treatment is a CURE?


Location: 1050 Jenkins Nanovic Hall

Erin Dolan, professor of biochemistry and molecular biology; Georgia Athletic Association Professor of Innovative Science Education, University of Georgia

National calls to improve undergraduate STEM education have emphasized the importance of undergraduate research experiences. Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences, or CUREs, involve groups of students in addressing research problems or questions in the context of a class, and have been proposed as scalable ways of involving undergraduates in research. This seminar will offer a definition of CUREs, describe what makes them distinctive from other learning experiences, outline the state of knowledge about CURE effectiveness, and highlight results from the study of a unique and highly impactful CURE model.
