For 20 years the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) has supported excellence in teaching and education reform efforts through the ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE), faculty training institutes and education publications.
The Vision and Change report acknowledged ASM's contributions to undergraduate education, particularly citing on p. 60-61 the Annual ASMCUE as a venue that advances the scholarship of teaching and learning in biology and the ASM/NSF Biology Scholars Program for its efforts to support faculty with ongoing peer mentoring and a community that catalyzes and sustains faculty efforts to adopt new practices. The report also acknowledges the 2010 decision to publish ASMCUE abstracts in ASM's Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education in order to provide authors a citation for their work in the field. Finally, this "In Practice" highlight section of the report concludes, "It is expected that ASMCUE participants will contribute new knowledge and understanding in biology education as they develop professionally and that they will be recognized and rewarded for these efforts, leading to genuine reform in undergraduate biology education."
Please do join us for our 20th Anniversary celebration and watch for details about how we plan to celebrate the "change" that has already been implemented by dedicated educators over two decades and reveal our plans to continue to do so!
