More than 350 microbiology and biology educators will gather at the ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) August 1–4, 2019 in Tysons, VA, for an engaging four-day conference. Educators come from a wide range of institutions – from community colleges to international universities – to fully immerse themselves in biological sciences.

The conference program includes plenary, concurrent, poster, and exhibit sessions. Participants engage in formal and informal small group discussions between colleagues all focused on the same goal: to improve teaching and learning in the biological sciences. Registration is now open!

Submission deadline: April 30, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. (PT)

Share your "brewing idea" in the classroom or lab with your fellow microbiology educators. 

A microbrew showcases a “brewing idea” in any of the subdisciplines in the biological sciences. Presenters can share or field test new ideas and solicit feedback from peers. Unlike other presentation opportunities at ASMCUE, assessment data are NOT required. There will also be a collaboration space following the presentations for continued discussions.
