NSF-funded REIL-Biology<http://rcn.ableweb.org/> is accepting applications now for workshops held immediately preceding the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) National Conference<http://rcn.ableweb.org/reil-biology-workshop-cur/> and the Genetic Society of America Allied Genetics Conference (GSA TAGC)<http://rcn.ableweb.org/reil-biology-workshop-tagc/>, both to be held in Florida this summer.
A team of faculty would propose a project to develop a module or course that incorporates research into the lab course. This project can take advantage of local expertise among your faculty, collaborations with neighboring institutions, or adaptation of nationally-vetted course-based undergraduate research modules. At the day-long workshop, the faculty team will work specifically on that module, preparing it for future implementation and assessment at your institution. At the following associated national conference, they will also present their projects to a larger conference audience.
Accepted teams can receive funding to travel to the workshop and attend the conference.
