The Texas Institute for Discovery Education in Science (TIDES; https://cns.utexas.edu/tides) at The University of Texas at Austin (UT-Austin) is joining forces with the National Academies Summer Institute (http://www.academiessummerinstitute.org/) to offer an intensive professional development session for faculty to develop their own CUREs. Modeled on the National Academies Summer Institutes, the CURE SI will be a working meeting during which participants will learn about and use evidence-based teaching strategies to develop a CURE they will teach at their home institution during the 2015-2016 academic year. Working sessions will focus on the features of science research projects that lend themselves to CUREs, and on teaching CUREs using evidence-based teaching strategies, such as active learning, assessment, and mentoring. Each participant or participating team will have an experienced CURE instructor as an onsite facilitator and distant mentor as they teach their CUREs during the academic year.
The CURE SI will be held at UT-Austin from June 28 to July 2, 2015. The following costs will be covered:
