CURE Workshop on Appalachian ecology

The CEREUS Educational Network uses regional environmental issues to communicate concepts in biology, while encouraging process-based learning, analytical skills, and effective scientific communication. The workshop will offer an opportunity for professional educators in the southern Appalachian region to gather and learn about how we have plant-based CURE's in college biology classrooms. These experiences could be implemented in secondary school activities also. Participants will receive curricular materials and assistance developing their own CURE's.

Food and lodging will be provided at no cost. Attendance will be limited to 25 people and travel stipends will be available for attendees with significant travel needs. Early career college and university faculty, high school teachers, graduate students, and post-docs are encouraged to apply.
