CUREnet : Course based undergraduate Research Experience "CUREnet is a network of people and programs that are creating course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) in biology as a means of helping students understand core concepts in biology, develop core scientific competencies, and become active, contributing members of the scientific community. Through a series of in-person meetings and other activities, CUREnet is assembling individuals with diverse expertise (instructors, researchers, information technology specialists, faculty development / curriculum specialists, education researchers) who represent diverse institutions and varied CURE projects in terms of data type (genomic, phenotypic, ecological)."
CIRTL Massive Online Open Courses "The CIRTL (Center for Integrated Research Teaching and Learning) mission is to enhance excellence in undergraduate education through the development of a national faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse learners as part of successful and varied professional careers. The CIRTL Core Ideas, often referred to as the Pillars, are at the foundation of all that CIRTL does: Teaching-as-Research, Learning Community, and Learning-through-Diversity. The teaching-as-research and learning community ideas formed the basis of the CIRTL proposal and strategic plan. Enhancing learning for all students has been woven into all CIRTL initiatives since the beginning, but only late in the first year of the project did we recognize the importance of making learning-through-diversity an explicit third foundational concept."
